Color & Contour, Throughout the Year, Joy of Christmas, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a Christmas card to share with you. It's a very quick and easy one and you can use small amounts of Designer Series Paper (DSP) to make it. Perhaps get some use out of the scraps you have???  Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Cherry Cobbler card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left. I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock for the inside and two for the outside. I used one on the outside for a base for the DSP and top layer to be attached to for better stability and to line things up and get it sized right. But you can omit that piece if you like.

The DSP is from the "Joy of Christmas" 12" x 12" package and was cut at 4" x 3".  I taped this to the Basic White piece. 

Next I took the other Basic White piece and I die cut the scallop from the "Color & Contour" bundle. I set it very close to the bottom of the piece so I would have lots of space for trimming. Once the piece was cut I taped it to the other piece, just barely on top of the DSP.  Then I trimmed the excess off the top.

The words were stamped next. They are from the "Throughout the Year" set and were stamped using Cherry Cobbler ink.

Using the Mono glue, I added the holly sequins from the "Loose Holly Gems & Sequins" container. 

The 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White was taped to the inside of the card and the card was done.

I can't believe how quick and easy this card was to make. I have lots of retired Christmas DSP and could whip out our holiday cards in no time.  Hmmm. I think this layout may be the one I use. My goal is to have our holiday cards made and ready to mail the day after Thanksgiving and worse case December 1st.  Nice goal to have, I hope I can do it!

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

I have so much Christmas paper! I was able to get half of a package of that Joy of Christmas paper. Love your card using that piece but I have other designs that would sure work great with that layout! Another card to save in my file. :)
