That is my plan, to post up a Christmas card each day of December – whether or not the silly season takes over, is yet to be seen, however I will give it my best shot, to give you some inspiration for your own Christmas cards.
And since today is the first day of December, here is my first Christmas card for you! 🙂
I have made a few in this style, so you might see a couple of these (is that cheating?). It is basically a one layer card, apart from the bauble. I have embossed the card front with the Boughs and Berries textured embossing folder, then cut a plain bauble out of the gorgeous Red Foil, then one of more elaborate baubles to go over the top in the Very Vanilla cardstock. Both baubles are from the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits dies. The Merry Christmas sentiment comes from a retired stamp set called More Merry Messages, however you could use one of your own favourites. You could also stamp it directly on to the card front if you are game (or like using stamp positioners), for this one though, I chose to use a separate flag the layer above the embossing.
Stay tuned for more Christmas inspiration.

Lovely card Chris, I really like the white embossed background with the splash of bright red, very Christmassy. Good luck with your personal challenge.
