Challenge #88
Christmas Card - carol or song

This fortnights challenge 'Christmas Card - carol or song' has been chosen by Christine.  A fun alternative Christmas card using the song 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' as the basis.

Lots of designing going on here which kept me quiet for a wee while.  I used SCAL (Sure Cuts Alot software) to design the heart cutout background and heart layers.  The text for the foiling was also designed in SCAL.  I then hot foiled the text and die cut the white heart, then the rest of the die cutting was done.  All that was left to do was assemble the card and add a heart brad.  Had a lovely time making this card and a nice break from the colouring I usually do too.

Link to song - All I Want For Christmas Is Your sung by Mariah Carey if you want to listen.
