Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas~ Amber Inkling Style

Morning Everyone!!

Even though Thanksgiving is not here yet I have Christmas on the brain.
I said last year that I would not wait to the last minute to get my holiday cards done and what there is only 2 months till Christmas...
So with that said I plan on making and sharing Christmas cards from now on....well maybe not all Christmas but the bulk will be :)

I have another Amber Ink card to share
Now If you saw my last Christmas card using the Green Cheer ipaper you will recognize it in this card, I used my leftover scraps and came up with this.
Here are the details:
The frames are from Preserves and I used the swiss dots embossing folder on the white card stock layer.
Before embossing I stamped my sentiment using Fired Brick Distress Ink and a dollar bin sentiment stamp.
My trees are from the Designer Calendar cartridge cut at 2.75 and 2"
I attached these with foam squares for the extra dimension.
My card stock is scraps in white and black, PTI in Scarlet Jewel
and Green Cheer for the trees.

All month long over at Less is More, Amber Ink is sponsoring their challenges.
This weeks challenge is
One Layer Cards using Leaves
Now remember all the challenges over at Less is More are CAS challenges.
And they stand by that....they have to be CAS!
There are some amazing cards already entered but you still have time to head over and link up!!

That is all I have for you today...
I hope you like my card :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!!
