Christmas Circle Card using Deckeled Circle Dies

 Is it too early to begin making Christmas cards? 

I demonstrated how to make this fun easel card on my weekly live, September 14, 2023. Life has been so busy I just didn't get it posted. I just love the Oh Holy Night Designer Series Paper Stampin' Up! ®️ offered in the September to December 2023 Mini Catalog. The "Night Devine"dies were used to complete the scene and the greeting was from the "Stars At Night" stamp set.

This is what the card looks like when it is open as an easel.
