Christmas Classics, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have another quick and easy card to share with you. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of the 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 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and textured it using the "Distressed Tile" embossing folder. A 2" x 4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Joy of Christmas" 12" x 12" package and I glued it to the left side of the textured card stock. Then that piece as glued to the card base.

Next I die cut the Basic White rectangle with leaves from the "Christmas Classics" bundle. I also die cut a holly leaf and two of the loopy type leaves using Garden Green card stock.  I also used the same loopy dies to cut two of the gold "More Dazzle" specialty paper. You have to be careful of the size dies you use with the paper because it's got tiny gold fold dots on it and the smaller you go the less of those dots stay on. I lost a few making these.

And lastly the words, they were stamped using the the "Christmas Classics" set with Pecan Pie ink. I die cut them using the die in the bundle.

Now to assemble the rest of the work. I added the words using Dimensionals.  Then I set that piece in place on top of the card but I didn't glue it down. I set it so I could see where to add the leaves.

The leaves were added using glue and then the piece with the words on it was added using glue and the card was done.

A little bling would be pretty but I didn't want to add any to mine.

This was a very fun card to make. It was easy to make and quick to put together. And I'm happy with the way it turned out.

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