Deck The Halls

Christmas is less than 8 weeks away!  Are you ready?  I still have lots of Christmas cards to make. They are my favorite kind of cards to make so I know I will have fun this next month getting caught up.
I am also counting down the days until Sirius XM starts playing Christmas songs.  Yes, I am that person.  I love listening to Christmas music and will have it playing everyday until Christmas is over.

This card uses stamps from one of my favorite stamp companies, Magnolia Stamps.  I used a sketch from 52 Christmas Card Throw down.  I did not use any die cuts for this card which is unusual for me.  I did add some fun embellishments though.  The snowflakes are buttons and yes, those are real jingle bells.  I stitched them to the card so they are secure.  I added gold stickles to the star on top of the tree, snow tex to the tree branches, white embossing powder for falling snow and I painted the string of jingle bells with extreme glitter paint.
