Simple, Impressive Christmas Card

When blue is your favourite colour and you want a simple, impressive Christmas card, you can always rely on the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to help you out!  Stampin’ Up! always has a variety of Designer Series Paper (DSP) with patterns that coordinate with their cardstock.  Because of this, I find it so easy to have all the components match and/or compliment each other in my projects.
