To make my card I've used a new stamp set from Stampin' Up called 'Jingle Jingle Jingle'.

I used some scraps of Stampin' Up papers to make my background and then die cut a scalloped stitched panel to go on top.  

I stamped the 'tis the season' in Mossy Meadow and die cut it with a banner die and then stamped the 'jolly' underneath in black ink.  Then I stamped the 'jolly' again on patterned paper, cut the letters out and stuck them onto the die cut panel.

I finished the panel with some Card Candy.
