Joy to the World - Day 9: Unruly Paper Arts 12 Days of Christmas

Hello everyone.  Day 9 already!  Whew, it is sure going by fast.  I am having a blast making my Christmas cards to share with you as part of the Unruly Paper Arts 12 Days of Christmas Link Up Party.  I hope you are playing along, but if not, then I hope you are enjoying all of the wonderful talent that is sharing their creativity with us.

Today, I have a simple, traditional red and green Christmas card.
It was so simple to make.  Just stamp the sentiment and trumpet onto white card stock.  Then use any die that will fit around the image to cut out.  Color in with markers, add some gold glitter glue to the trumpet and let dry.
Next, trim green card stock to slightly smaller than card front and run through any embossing folder. I chose these snowflakes, so I hit the high spots with white ink.

Edge the pieces with a gold Krylon pen, adhere to red card, pop dotting the trumpet image.

Next, I added these pretty little red roses and holly leaves, with some snippets of silver beading.
