First Christmas Card of 2012 . . . blimey!!!

A card design that's a little bit different for me . . . a "magic card".
Made using two pieces of card for the body, each one slightly smaller than the last.
Using a Martha Stewart punch called "Cherish" to give a nice edge.
Distress Ink in Walnut Stain was used to give a vintage, aged look to all of the edges.

A 'magic' panel in the middle hides a message and an area to write a personal message
I've used a 'nestie' to cut two identical shapes, again I've aged with Walnut Stain.  Some holly leaves, berries and some pearls are used to embellish.

Lots of Stickles glitter glue have been used too, very Christmassy!
