Ready for Christmas!!

I can't believe I'm saying this - I've finished making my Christmas cards!! :) I wasn't going to post one online since I mass produced and made 34 cards, but it fits the JUGS challenge this week! The 5th challenge is a Wild Card challenge - create a holiday card designed to present a photo.
I used a stair step style to create a photo holder. The photo is a collage print from snapfish which has a red background and 2 pictures. The green behind it is just a frame to hold the picture. I embossed the green with a CB swirl embossing folder. Then used my nesties to create a tag. Here's a closeup:

I cut out the holly and used a button for a berry. On the back, I folded a strip of paper to make a stand to keep the photo up right. Then I added the ribbon to dress it up. Merry Christmas - LOL! :)
