My Last Christmas Card...I Think!

Hi Everyone,
Just a quick post today. I have another Christmas card for you today. I think this will be the last Christmas card design for the year. I am going to make about 12 cards from this design and that should be it . I am closing the list! This is a quick and easy card. Take a look.




I used a Cuttlebug folder , cut the piece to size and layered. I added a pretty ribbon, some gems, and a sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly. Cs: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up. Ink: Chocolate Chip from SU and a metallic gold to add color to the sentiment tag. Here are some detail shots.



Challenges for Christmas Holly:



Simon Says Stamps: NO Red or Green



Aud Sentiments: Use "Happy Holidays"



ABC-Challenge: J is for Jewels and gems


Paper Pals Art: FashionInspiration Photo

If the Shoe Fits: Texture



Told you this would be a quickie. I got most of my Christmas cards in the mail yesterday. I will hand deliver some to my neighbors too. You have a great day. Oh, we have snow here today. Not much. Just enough to make everything all white and pretty.

It may be quick and easy but it looks absolutely wonderful! Distressing the background makes the embossed parts stand out really well! Have a great weekend Karen, Ira x
