My first 2011 Christmas card!

Loving the MIM techniques shared at PTI this week, and I am feeling inspired! :) I tried to do the glitter window with this one too, but it was a little too much, so I saved that window for another project ;)

I won the Holiday Tree stamp set from PTI a few months back and wanted to break it in. I think it will be my stamp set of choice for our Christmas cards this year. I love the rustic country feel.

Last year, I made a bunch of patterned paper using the Distressed Stipes stamp set, and came across it so I decided to use it for this card.

The inside:

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Holiday Tree, Distressed Stripes
Paper: Stampers Select White, Scarlet Jewel, Kraft
Ink: Fresh Snow, Scarlet Jewel, Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss, Tea Dye Duo, Memento Tuxedo Black
Dies: Mat Stack 1, Limitless Layers 1.75", Tiny Tags
Other: Rustic Jute Twine

Love your card. The colors go great together. Love how you pulled all the elements together with the twine & tiny tag. Love the inside too! I still need to try this MIM technique.
