Christmas time

It's time to start making Christmas cards.  I just got the new 'Tis the Season stack from Echo Park and wanted to play with it. This is what I came up with.

The paper is double-sided, so I only had to cut into two sheets to make this patchwork design. (Yes, I hate cutting into brand new paper, a common but terrible quirk for a paper crafter).  After I had everything glued together, I figured out how I could have made a pinwheel design, but then it was too late. The patchwork is mounted on a silver metallic paper layer

The tag features a couple of adorable stamps from Hero Arts. I added red fibers and a metallic silver bow, then popped it up on popdots.

This card is for the following challenges:

Simon Says Monday Challenge, patchwork
Created With Love #65, Christmas Red and Green
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, Red and Green with gold or silver
C.R.A.F.T Challenge #232, Christmas
Word Art Wednesday #105, Anything Goes.
