Simple Christmas

Well, I've been saying I better get started on Christmas cards for a while now. I was just starting to think Christmas cards just weren't going to happen for me this year. . .and then I got to play a little yesterday. If I had a chance AT ALL to get cards stamped, written out and mailed, they would have to be very simple. Here is one of the cards I came up with. I've had this snowflake punch for a while and haven't really used it much. I punched it out and mounted it flat on the card. It's kind of neat because it really looks like it was dry embossed. I added some silver glitter glue dots to add some sparkle. The sentiment is by A Muse. The card was still looking a little too plain for me, so I added the scalloped bottom with some silver paper from the DCWV Metallic Stack. Hopefully I can get a little mass production going today! I have another card I was playing around with, but I don't know if it will come together. If it does, I'll be sure and show you that one too! Hope you all are doing well with your Christmas cards if you're making them! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- A Muse Artstamps; Paper- Georgia Pacific White Cardstock, silver (DCWV Metallic Stack); Ink- Silver; Accessories- slit punch, silver glitter glue, Marvy snowflake punch, white organdy ribbon (Darice).

Sorry I've been out of commenting mode - even WITHOUT three little ones, life is hectic, so I agree with Donna, everyone will understand if you don't do cards! However, I have to say the simple elegance of this just took my breath away and I had to tell you! I love the extra touch of the metallic scallop and silver glitter glue. Beautiful!

Don't stress yourself about cards my dear. I keep trying to remind myself this is something I do for the joy of it, I never want it to feel like real work.
