Warm Wishes

Today's card is for Christmas, and it is going to be a lot easier this year getting them out because starting to make them early means less stress close to Christmas. 

I used a Cricut cartridge that I've not used very much--Winter Wonderland, and played around with it a bit. The berries were cut out also, but they looked a bit flat, so I embellished them with liquid red 3-D paint, which made the berries stand out a lot better and have a lot more dimension. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp set called "Heavens Rejoice." The red bow was glued and glittered for some extra sparkle. Pop dots were used for added dimension.

Here is the card:
