Clean and Simple Christmas Card with The Stampsmith

Hi Everyone,
I have another Christmas card today.  I went very CAS (clean and simple) with this one.  I used a lovely stamp from The Stampsmith called "Grace Christmas"  I stamped the image on glossy white CS with black dye ink.



The card base is made from Real Red CS from Stampin' Up.  The flowers were cut off their stems, layered, and held together with a gold brad.  I picked up the flower bunches at Michael's for $1 each.




This is a super simplistic card.  As I was making it, I realized it just did not need anything else.  I love the contrast of the white and red CS.   I added a sentiment from My Favorite Things on the inside.


CAS Christmas is entered in the following challenges:
Fashionable Stamping: White Christmas
Paper Sundaes: Winter Wonderland
Stamptacular Sunday: Anything Christmas
Less is more: a bit of bling

Have a great day!  Love ya.  PS: Did not get any Christmas decorations up. I will have to work on this during the week.
Karen
