Christmas Greeting

It might be summer in Chicago, but Christmas challenges are here. My card today is for Cheery Lynn Designs challenge -- Christmas in July and for Inspiration Journal -- Christmas in June. I started with a red card base and dry embossed it with the December calendar folder (Tim Holtz). I used black soot distress ink to highlight the embossing  Both the tree and the train are die cuts from Cheery Lynn. The sentiment is an outline sticker.

Great card! I really like how you made the calendar embossing the background. Those die cuts are so detailed - I especially like the train. Thank you for sharing with us this month at Inspiration Journal. =)

Barbara, what a fun Christmas card, love the train paired up with the tree. When I was a kid, my dad always set up a train around the base of our tree! Good luck and thanks for joining in on the fun at Cheery Lynn Designs challenge.
