This is beautiful, Ali! Love the traditional feel of this Christmas card, and the embossed kraft paper makes a great background for the little scene you've created with stamps and die cuts. Well done!

Wow! this is fab Ali - what a beautiful design! I love the 3D effect with the trees in the background….and the gorgeous poinsettia, gingham ribbon and lamp are really pretty with the embossed Kraft. It has a lovely cosy Christams feel to it! :-)
Thanks for joining us at Moving Along With the Times this week!
