Sending You Season's Greetings

I'm continuing to add to my Christmas card stash! This time I'm playing along with the challenge at Festive Friday #41.  This rustic themed inspiration photo reminds me of Christmas scenes from the past. You know, the ones from old holiday cards and movies.  Ahhh...nostalgia!

My card.

The pine panels/siding in the photo inspired me to use kraft card stock.  I love the pop of the white skates and door, so I wanted to work that into my card, too.  Then, a couple of die cut pine branches along with a few red gems added to my die cut panel...and that was about all.  Oh, and my stamped "season's greetings".
I cut several of the kraft panels to get the thickness I wanted.  The narrow frame within it and the die cut "you" are only one layer, though.  I like to vary the thickness of layers on a card to give a feeling of more depth and dimension.

Thanks for stopping in!
