Ooooops! It's back to Christmas

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well, warm and dry!
I've gone back to Christmas with my card for today. At this rate I will have next year's Christmas cards made before the end of this year LOL.


This card was a bit of an experiment really. I had made the topper last week and realised that it was too big for a 6x6 card so it had to be an 8x8, but what to do for a frame? I had seen on someones blog or DC gallery (sorry I can't remember where or when) how to emboss a card using Nesties so that's what I did and was flabbergasted when it worked LOL.
Dies used are Cheery Lea'bilities and Memory box and punch is Martha Stewart. Sorry, can't remember whose embossing folder it is! Although the mat looks gold on the right hand side it is actually silver :o)
