Make a Card Monday - Merry Christmas from Our Home to Yours

Every year after I finish my Christmas cards, I tell myself that next year I'll do a simpler card so it won't be so much work. It never fails that the following year somehow I'm making something even more complicated. Like our card for this year:
I fell in love with the Papertrey Ink kit that came out around the holidays two years ago. I put it on my Christmas wish list. Bass "surprised" me with it on Christmas morning. Of course, that meant I absolutely had to use it for our cards this year.
This is almost a totally PTI card. I embossed the large mat background. And cut all of the circle layers and banner from the PTI dies. After I stamped the layers and adhered them, I added Stickles along the snowbanks for a little sparkle. (I listed 3 different colors below simply because I kept running out. I only used 1 color per card.) I think I like how they turned out.
But next year is going to be an easy card! ;)
