another holly card

hi there!       had made this late the other night...quick and easy!
Those are my "design words" for this week....and for those friends who have shared with me that they don't want to do a lot of detail....would like to see some easier cards!
I am super flattered that you are looking here for inspiration...thank you for all of your email...I can be a few days answering...and appreciate your patience :)


 Those of you just starting your Christmas cards...will post more quick n easies to hopefully give you some ideas!  If this is your first year stamping your cards, just try to pace yourself. Everyone goes about doing their cards differently.  I know the number I like to have done and do 4 different designs so I don't get bored doing same card...I use the assembly method - will stamp what I need for those 25...go ahead and cut all my paper and do my background mats (usually I mat my cards)...then color images while watching (really just listening) something on TV with DH.  Then enjoy putting them all together....I wouldn't try to do anything to complicated for your first year - keep it "quick n easy" ....the joy is in the making and then the giving!!!

Stamp: A Very Merry Christmas from GinaK by Theresa Momber
Paper: GinaK's cranberry tart and gold, Basic Grey (dont know name - in my BG stash folder)
Ink: sponged with Memento's Ruhbarb
Embellishments: colored with copics, ribbon stash, added glitter in swirls with gold glitter pen, nesties
Technique: embossing, matting

Thanks for poppin in,
Have a blessed day


PS  Candy is all spread out on dining room table, now just need to get it posted!!!

So beautiful! I have been debating on if I should make cards for everyone this year being my first year ... I think I will take your advice and start slow and pace myself so I don't get overwhelmed!
