I found a new to me Christmas Value pack on Stitching cards yesterday - here. I bought it straight away as I particularly wanted to do the Christmas Tree. I think it is just fab. I sort of followed their colour ideas and then went on the hunt for a suitable backing paper. I found one on one of my favourite CD 's by Carol Ann's Studio. (CD-8 2nd Xmas CD) This great purple toned paper is also done in red, green, pink and blue. I love it because as well as being a background it is also the sentiment. Nothing else is needed.
So I hope you like a more modern style stitched card:
