52 Christmas Card Throwdown

 Everywhere I look, people are counting down to Christmas!  Can we please get to Thanksgiving first?  I seriously have to get through one holiday before I can go to the next.  With that said, I do enjoy creating Christmas cards all year long.  Possibly a contradiction, but I think creating cards vs all out decorating are two different things! This have been a crazy year, so I am slightly behind on the Christmas card making.  Which brings me to another CAS card featuring the Yuletide BordersThin Cuts.  I just love this set!  This version features Candy Apple Red and Evergreen.  I chose my colors based on the color challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

My card is super simple to create and is a great way to use up some scraps.  I cut two of the borders in White Daisy cardstock and then alternated squares of Candy Apple and Evergreen cardstock underneath.  I added borders along the edges as well.  Great use of the scrap pile!  My sentiment was cut in Candy Apple.  A few strands of Silver Embellishing Thread and Bitty Sequins finish off the card. In case you missed the Yuletide Bordersset previously, here is the complete set-
