We have three sneak peeks left to show you:
Let me just tell you, that scripty Christmas word die!!!! I can't even!!!
So of course I used it for today's card:
 
I cut a circle out of my white front, stamped it with two colors of green stripes (from Basic Backgrounds & Borders), and put it back in the negative space.  The hanging line is stamped using the stitching from the same set.  I added some greenery, a topper, and a red bow. The scripty Christmas is three layered cuts, and I added the "HAPPY" last.  The whole thing is mounted on a kraft base.
