If you’re a fan of traditional holiday colors then you will love the Rejoice collection. It has that classic red and green but with updated patterns so it’s really fresh and new.

This card was inspired by the Santa image that was fussy cut from a journal card in the Enhancement paper pad.  Reminiscent of days gone by it’s just so perfectly vintage.  That Enhancement pad has sooo many cards you will have a tough time choosing a favorite.

I used a combination of the 12 x 12 and 8 x 8 paper patterns and mixed and matched them to create the perfect base for the focal image.  There’s an additional polka dot  pattern die cut with a stitched cove corner that’s layered with a pretty gold doily.

There’s some handmade by me flowers here in a sweet little arrangement with die cut leaves and loopy twine bows. The sentiment coordinates perfectly and comes from the sticker sheet.

This gate fold styled card leaves so much more real estate to cover with the lovely patterned papers.
