Distressed Christmas

Hello everyone!  I had to work today so am just getting this card posted.

I decided to make this a shabby looking card Christmas card after I found a bunch of strips that I cut last year at this time.  I glued them together on card stock and then used the top note die to cut out the background.  This is a good way to get rid of small scraps of paper!

I love your idea of using the strips of designer paper like this! It looks so nice being cut with the die. Super icicles with the goo punch too!
