Christmas card Using CTMH Woodland Wishes and other CTMH products

Hello friends!   Is everyone ready for Christmas?  Right?  LOL!  I have finished sending out my Christmas cards and Christmas checks.  I found I had several cards already created from this year and last year combined; so that was a big help.   I was worried that I might not have enough home made cards.  I only send my home made cards to certain people; because some people just throw them in the trash when the season is over.  I keep every card that is hand made that I receive each year; but I know not everyone feels that way about them as I do.  

I created this Christmas card specifically for my friend Lori.  I saw this die when I was looking for dies I hadn't used yet and thought of her.  I fell in love with this die when I first saw it; but I don't think I have ever used it.  Sad when we buy things and don't remember we have them the next year at Christmas.  Oh well, I am working on trying to remember to look each year before I start my cards.

I also fell in love with this shiny cardstock from Crafters Companion Winter Wonderland Collection.  I thought it went perfectly with this gorgeous reindeer die.  The paper is part of the Winter Wonderland paper pack; sold separately from the glitter and mirror cardstock.
