Christmas Classics, Shining Brightly, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I am going to share a Christmas card I made that is super easy and quick. I was gifted some Designer Series Paper (DSP) and card stock and I thought today was a good day to play with it. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I used Basic White because I didn't have a lot of the Poppy Parade so I needed to use it sparingly.  I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of the Poppy Parade and I taped it to the card base.

Next I cut a piece of Basic White card stock that measures 4" x 2". I textured it using the "Snowflake Sky" embossing folder. I glued that strip to the right side of the card.

The DSP is from the "Shining Brightly" 12" x 12" package and was cut at 2-3/4' x 4".  And the Poppy Parade layer behind it was cut at 3" x 4-1/4".  I taped the two pieces together. Dimensionals were added behind it and the piece was set in place on the front of the card. I centered it as well as I could by eyeing it.

The words are from the "Christmas Classics" bundle and were stamped using Old Olive ink. I die cut them with a stitched circle from the "Stylish Shapes" set and the scalloped layer is cut from a scrap piece of Poppy Parade using the die from the "Layering Circles" set. I taped the two pieces together. The piece was set in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals. And the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make. If I hadn't had a scrap piece of Poppy Parade for the scalloped circle, I would have cut one out of the center of the layered piece before taping the two together. I love how colorful this card is. It's got such a festive feel to it.

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