Framed & Festive, Painted Christmas, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up! 2022

Today I wanted to try to keep my card quick and simple plus use a larger piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) because I have SO much left and the month is going by quickly. As I see it, I will not be using up any of the packages I bought. That causes me to rethink my purchases in the future. Anyway, I did use up a nice chunk of DSP today.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Real Red for the layer. The DSP is from the "Painted Christmas" 12" x 12" package and I cut it at 3-7/8" x 5-1/8". I taped the DSP to the Real Red piece and then that was taped to the card base.

The words are from the "Framed & Festive" set and were stamped using Garden Green ink. Rethinking that I probably should have used Real Red so they popped out more but I just left it as it was (for now). I die cut the words using the second largest stitched circle die from the "Stylish Shapes" set. Then I die cut a Garden Green scalloped circle from the "Layering Circles" die set. I used the second largest one in that set. I taped the two circles together and added Dimensionals to the back. I set the piece in place on the front of the card and the card was done.

I told you it was quick and simple! I need that this time of year! So many extra things we do in December and it's so odd that we manage to get them all done too!  Kind of makes me wonder what I do with my time the rest of the 11 months in the year!!!  LOL

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's quick Christmas card,

I too had issues creating with this pack of DSP.
Thanks for sharing this LOVELY card idea......Hope to make a few of these before the holiday season is over.

Clean and simple layout. It's funny how I will hoard paper but then when I finally cut into it and use part of a sheet, I find ways to quickly use up the rest so it's gone.
