Christmas Card with Marianne Creatable


Look what came in the mail yesterday!  It's a Marianne creatable and it came all the way from Holland!  It's nice to have connections in other parts of world ;-)  I fell in love with this die the minute I saw a card made with it and although my SIL had problems in finding one, because they were sold out everywhere, she persevered and here I am with my new toy!  I love it!  Thank you Marian!
I bought this stamp last year but hadn't had a chance to use it - now it is perfect for this card. I'm definately going to use this die cut a lot in this year's Christmas cards and the great thing about it is that you can use it all year round! Isn't it so elegant? There are very few sellers in the US that have this "creatable" in stock but I think they are rather pricey when you add the shipping.  What is up with someone selling this for $29.95 and then adding $10.95 for shipping?  It fits in a regular size bubble envelope!  And it weighs next to nothing! Really people!!!!!

I kept the inside of my card very simple although I did bring in the colours and the holly theme.
