Fireplace Card – Carols of Christmas Bundle

Every year I set myself a goal to start making my Christmas cards early but I never do.  Are you the same?  I know Christmas is 5 months away but when Stampin’ Up! announced the early release of the Carols of Christmas stamp set and coordinating Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies I knew it was a great opportunity for me to finally be able to achieve my goal.
