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

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a quick Christmas card to share with you. One more day to go in my quest to have a week of quick cards. It's not to say that I won't have more but they probably won't be in 7 consecutive days like these have been. I love quick cards, especially when they don't look like you just threw them together. 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. I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic white card stock for the front. If you want to make an even quicker card you could eliminate that piece.

Next I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Shining Brightly" 12" x 12" package. My piece was cut at 5-1/4" x 4". Then I cut that piece diagonally. I cut it at 1-1/2" at the bottom and 4" at the top. I set it up on my paper cutter and cut the angle. I taped that piece to the left of the 4" x 5-1/4" Basic White piece.

Then I stamped the words from the "Christmas Classics" set using Poppy Parade ink. 

A 1/4" piece of Night of Navy card stock was cut from a quarter sheet of card stock. It overlapped the top and bottom (as planned). I trimmed each end and it looked even. The piece was then taped to the front of the card base.

I colored some pearls using my Cherry Cobbler Blends pen and set them in place on the front of the card.

This was a very quick and easy card to make. It's got some fun colors to it and doesn't really look like it went together fast.  Oh and the other end of the DSP can be used on another card. With this design it doesn't matter the orientation so it could go on the left side again and have the words up a little higher on the card. It won't go to waste.

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

I just love Christmas lights. So this card is perfect. I like the line down the middle and the ink choice color. Great job.

That is such a fun card to make quickly. Also a great way to use up some pieces of dsp. My friends and I made a bunch of those last Christmas for one of the places where we donate.
