A Quick Christmas Card

Nothing beats a quick Christmas card when you're in a hurry.  And no, there isn't water splatters on this card.  I was playing with some spray stuff.  I mixed up some Frost White Shimmer paint and I sprayed too close to my paper.  So this results in big bloppy looking spots of shine!  But in the photo it looks more like greasy splatter spots!  Not the image I was hoping to project here!!! LOL  

Ok, so lets get back to the simplicity and quickness of this card.  First you take a half sheet of Cherry Cobbler card stock and fold it in half.  Next you take a piece of Whisper White card stock and cut it to 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" and use the Northern Flurry snowflake folder to texture it.  Then you spritz it with some shimmer paint but be sure to leave some space between the spray bottle and the paper!!! A VERY important tip to remember!  LOL  And once that is dry (in my case I had to use the heat embossing tool to dry the paper!) then I stamped the words on.  These are from the Chock-full of Cheer set.  I've used these words a lot on my Christmas cards lately.  And no, it's not because I didn't put the set away!  I don't have many Christmas greetings that aren't retired and I didn't buy the new set because it just wasn't in my budget this year.  I have plenty of greeting sets and I often use them (even if they are retired) because I know that those of you who need current stamps can just substitute the words.  As simple as that.

Now the card is ready for the mail!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
