Happy Hump Day!  Today's card features my favorite holiday--Christmas!  It came together pretty quickly...probably because I couldn't wait to get my hands on the new Wonderful Wreath and Christmas Messages stamp sets.

The DSP is a new fave too.  I especially love that Stampin' Up! made both a 4-1/2"x 6-1/2" stack (perfect for card fronts) and 12"x12" paper for this Season of Style paper.  I got the stack right away, but the other set is definitely on my Wish List and has more colors and designs.

This card reminds me of someone's front door.  What do you think?  I'll have to find more uses for this wreath because I just love it!

TIP:  If you notice, I heat embossed the sentiment in the center.  I let the stamped wreath image dry really well before I stamped the sentiment, and then heat embossed it.  Although I used Cherry Cobbler ink and Clear Embossing Powder, I would HIGHLY recommend that you stamp in VersaMark and use Cherry Cobbler embossing powder.  

I believe the Cherry Cobbler embossing powder would have been darker had I done that.  Because I was ready to move on to other projects, I didn't try it, but if you do, please let me know the results.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting!
