Simple Holiday Card

This was such a quick and easy little card, it would be perfect to mass produce for the holidays!

I used the Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo # 73 as inspiration!  If you want to play along too you can win your choice of paper kit :)

I cut the card base at 3 and 1/2 inches square (when folded, so 3 and 1/2 by 7 before folding)

I used all SP & Company Stamps for this card.

I used Stitchery Doo around the edges in Real Red

I used the square from Mini Card Creations I in Certainly Celery

I stamped Tis The Season in Real Red using the Christmas Emma Set

I stamped a tree from Ornamental Trees using Mellow Moss - a slight change from Pear Pizazz

Then I put the card, just the front portion, in the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and ran it through

This would go through the mail really easily, and is affordable too since it doesn't have embellishments.  :)

This card is so cute. I thought you actually sewed this card. Wow! The stamp set is so realistic. Great idea! I also love the tree!
