Christmas Card with Cuttlebug Acrylic Mat

Sharing a recent Christmas card using an embossed acrylic background. This was posted on the Cricut Messageboard.
Using Birds and Swirls Cuttlebug folder, I embossed a piece of acrylic (packaging material from a Cuttlebug folder) for the main background mat on this card. Swiss dots used on red mat.

Cricut cartridges:
Winter Woodland - Red bird which I cut several times and layered for chipboard effect.
Joys of the Season --Holly

Cuttlebug Folders - Birds and Swirls, Swiss Dots
Martha Stewart-  punch for the extra leaves. Sentiment from MS Christmas pack of embellishments, ink
Paper - Paper Studio

I really like the look of the CB mat. Hope you enjoy!
