Christmas Classics, Sparkling Snowflakes, Winter Meadow, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a quick Christmas card to share with you. I'm so into quick cards lately, especially Christmas cards when you need to make a lot of them in a short amount of time. 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. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 2-3/8" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Winter Meadow" 12" x 12" package and I taped it to the left of the card front. The DSP measures about 1/4" from the bottom, fold, and top.

Next I die cut the leaves from the "Christmas Classics" set. I also cut a set of berries. I colored all of them using my Wink of Stella pen.

Then I stamped the words from the "Sparkling Snowflakes" set using Misty Moonlight ink. I punched them using the "Double Oval" punch. My scrap piece of Basic White was large enough that it cut the scalloped oval at the same time. Dimensionals were added to the back of the word piece and it was set in place on top of the scalloped oval. 

I set the three leaves in place and laid the oval over them. I held the leaves in place with my left hand, lifted the stems and then added some tape to that area so the leaves would stick. 

The oval was glued down. I wasn't sure how well the tape would hold the leaves so I used glue on the oval. 

Lastly the berries were set in place using tiny Dimensionals.  And the card was done. 

I'm SO pleased with the way this card turned out. I love the wintery look it has. And most of all, it didn't take long to make!

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

Very pretty use of the dsp. I love that die cut you used for the focal point.
