Christmas Morn

Merry Christmas!
This morning my sisters and I woke up early to open presents and get ready for Christmas brunch (we went to church last night).  More on our holiday celebration later this week, though.  I wanted to post this year's Christmas card!  Everyone should finally have it by now, so I shouldn't be ruining the "surprise" for anyone.

This year I decided to make a pop up card.  I saw cards similar to this online and was excited to reproduce it. Because the card has so much texture (2 items through the Big Shot and wreathes and stockings both had to be punched out and assembled) it took some time to put together.  However, with limited stamping in this card, I was able to get them completed fairly quickly.
Paper: Crumb cake, Wild Wasabi
Ink: Early Espresso, Old Olive (on wreath)
Ribbon: Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine
Embellishments: Jingle Bells (only available in the holiday mini until January 2!), neutrals brad
Tools: Scallop circle punch, 1 inch circle punch

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper
Ink: Early Espresso, Peach Parfait (on flames)
Big Shot Dies: Vintage Wallpaper textured impressions die (on rug), Square Lattice textured impressions die (on fireplace)
Punch: Stocking Builder Punch, 2 inch circle punch, bird punch (for flames)
Stamp Set: Hand Penned Holidays
