I decorated this card with the die cuts and elements from the Stampin’ Up Rustic Christmas Countdown kit. I think this kit is gorgeous.

Simply add a holiday word set to compliment the die cuts. I used the Brightest Glow Stamp Set for this card. 

The designer series paper is from the St Nick Designer Series Paper Collection.

This technique folds to a standard size envelope.
