To make this project follow these steps.

Step 1
Cut out all your pieces in the cut file in the colors you desire.  For the designer paper use Graphic 45 The 12 Days of Christmas Paper Collection.  Once your pieces are cut assemble the base of the card as shown.

Step 2
Using another piece of your Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection, emboss the card stock using the Dreamweaver Holiday Greetings & Holly Embossing Folder.

Step 3
Sand the embossed piece using your Sand It Gadget and don’t forget to clean up with your dust buddy!  An easier way to keep your work area a little cleaner is to sand the pieces on a piece of printer paper!  Once you have sanded your piece, distress the edges using whatever tool you have.  Once you are finished this can be attached to the front of the card.

Step 4
Finish decorating the card using sentiments from the Stampendous Tis The Season Stamp Set and give to that special someone!

Thanks again for stopping by for a peek… Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!
