PTI Christmas Card Swap

My friend Jen is hosting a swap over on SCS for all the usual PTI addicts. I joined the Christmas card and sympathy card categories. I'm still toying with the stocking stuffer category, but I'm going to have to make a decision soon, and it doesn't lok like it's going to happen. I still have to do the sympathy card. Anyway, here is my entry for the Christmas slot.
I used the new Love Lives Here: Holidays stamp set and dies, and also the Christmas Label set and die. I found THIS neat sketch over on the CAS blog and it was just what I wanted for this card. All CS, ink, and DP are PTI (Ripe Avocado and Pure Poppy). Gold brads and cord are SU. I embossed the angel in gold. That turned out to be a bit of a pain--I don't recommend it. Too many pieces parts to deal with. Angel and label are popped up on foam tape. Sent is also embossed. I'm fairly pleased with how this turned out. I hope the other swappers like it--they are such a talented bunch that the bar is pretty high.

Thanks for dropping in today. Have a good one!
