Merry Melody and Christmas Season for the Crafty Collaboration Music Blog Hop

Hello Crafty People!
Today I'm blog hopping with a talented group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators. Our theme is anything music, so I was thrilled when I saw our new embossing folder, Merry Melody, in the current August-December Mini Catalog. After a little humming, I figured out it is Joy to the World music score on the folder. I just love Christmas music!
My card was constructed with the Christmas Pinecones and Seasonal Labels dies. The designer series paper is from the Painted Christmas package. I layered a 4" x 5 1/4" pinecone design piece on my 11" x 4 1/4" Cherry Cobbler card base. A 5" x 3 3/4" piece of Basic White was embossed with the Merry Melody embossing folder and I lightly sponged some Gray Granite ink over the raised design. 
The spruce was cut from Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent cardstock using the Christmas Pines die. The pinecones from the same die set with Early Espresso and gold foil paper. Behind the pinecones are sprigs I punched with the Sprig punch out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. 

The sentiment is from the Christmas to Remember stamp set, which is bundled with the Christmas Pinecone dies for a 10% discount. I cut all the layers with dies from Seasonal Labels die set. I love the way they layer so nicely on each other!
The inside sentiment is also from the Christmas to Remember stamp set. The greenery at the top is from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set.

Of course we can't send a Christmas card unless it is in a lovely envelope. I used the same paper that is on the card front for the back flap.

I hope this gives you an idea for one of your Christmas cards. Please take a minute to visit the other talented demonstrators' website to check out their lovely cards. The links are below.
