MERRY Christmas card with Stampin' Up! Large Letters

Hi everyone,

Well, just when I think I've shown you all my Christmas projects, I find another one hiding that I haven't showcased yet. And this I think is one of my favourites of this year. 
MERRY Christmas card using Large Letter dies

Large letter dies from Stampin' Up!

Once again it is a concertina card, although this time with a lot less panels. I have cut the letters from Gold/Silver Glimmer paper and used the Year of Cheer papers to mount them on. They were then mounted on Gold/Silver Foil card. The holly leaves were punched from Wild Wasabi card stock using the Holly Berry Builder punch and the berries from Real Red card stock using 1/8" circle handheld punch. The "Christmas" sentiment I used was from the Merry Mistletoe set - I had to mask off the "Wishes" at the bottom (see how in the video below) and then heat embossed it in either silver or gold.
