Plaid paper and the MISTI made this a quick and fun card. I still had this gorgeous sentiment from The Project Bin on my MISTI. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Song stamp set then die cut a cross-stitched frame with a new set of dies my sweet friend, Janeen sent me.
For quick and easy embellishment I used flourish die cuts and pine boughs then tucked them behind the sentiment. The card remains nice and flat for easy mailing but still has lots of interest.
This year more than most I am grateful to behold Him and embrace the spirit of the season instead of all the trimmings.
