Simple joy

Today I stamped quite a few of the bunny Christmas cards, but since you already saw that design I also decided to create another card with my Perfect Presentation set. I think Stampin' Up! was pretty smart to offer a hostess set that was specifically geared towards Christmas -- I really got a lot of use out of this stamp set from the moment I got it!

For this card I chose a wild wasabi base and stamped it with the snowflake stamp inked up in wild wasabi ink. I chose real red and certainly celery as my complimentary colors. I stamped the tree and the sentiment in wild wasabi on whisper white card stock and mated both with certainly celery card stock. I added a couple of corner punches in real red and a real red strip across the card front. To finish the card I used the signo gel pen and certainly celery stampin' write marker to add some faux stitching.

It's a very simple card, easy to stamp and mass produce, which is exactly what is needed in a Christmas Card in the middle of December!
