Best Wishes for a Happy Holiday Season One Layer Card

Hello and welcome!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving - we had a great time visiting our youngest daughter and enjoyed eating lots of good food, working on puzzles, going to a craft fair and to several fun dog friendly restaurants.  Now it's on to getting ready for Christmas!

I made this one layer Christmas card with a new to me die from Memory Box called "Secret Cabin" and the sentiment is from Altenew's "Happy Holidays" stamp set.

I die cut the cabin from the front of the heavy base card stock card base, but ran it through folded in half.  I knew the card stock was too thick to cut through both layers but it did leave a nice impression of the cabin die on the inside of the card.  Then I used a Brutus Monroe circle mask to ink the inside of the card so it would show through to the front.  I used Distress Inks in "Iced Spruce" and "Chipped Sapphire".  Below in another picture of my card:

I have got to get busy and finish my Christmas cards!  
Thanks so much for stopping by!
