Holiday Lights: The Sequel

The Hoilday Lights Christmas stamp set has fun images and sentiments. I made this one a few weeks ago that used red and yellow embossed 'ligt bulbs', but I wanted to try a different design. I just received  Holiday Photo Finishers in my most recent order from Papertrey Ink, so added the large round tag to the upper corner. The tag was stamped in PTI Pure Poppy ink and then overstamped with the snowflake flourish from Tag-Its #8, with Bamboo ink. A green marker outlines the red circle image.   It's a very festive look and an easy design for mailing!!

Here's the inside of the card, using another string of lights and the 'twinkle' sentiment from Tag Its #8.

Gorgeous fun card, Karen. I've been resisting holiday lights so far, but I love what you've done with it here. You're always so good at completing the inside too - I'm just too lazy :)
