Looking for a Simple Christmas Card?

Did you know there are only 8 weeks until Christmas?  Have you designed your Christmas cards yet?  If not, check out today's card - it's a quick and easy card - perfect for mass production and doesn't require a lot of supplies!
You could whip a bunch of these up in no time at all.  Here's the recipe...
  1. Card base is whisper white (5-1/2"x8-1/2"), scored at 4-1/4"
  2. Cherry cobbler 3-1/4"x4-1/4" run through the big shot using the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder (116824).
  3. Cut a 1"x4-1/4" piece of the Season of Style dsp (you can choose either the paper stack 132181 or the 12x12 sheets 132340).  Add this to the left side of the embossed cherry cobbler cardstock.
  4. Cut a 1/4"x4-1/4" piece of champagne glimmer paper (127885) and add it over top of the seam. Add this to the centre of the card front.
  5. Stamp the greeting from the Merry Little Christmas stamp set (WM 131826/CM 131829) using chocolate chip ink onto a strip of whisper white and punch it out using the 2-1/2" circle punch (120906).
  6. Add greeting to the card front using dimensionals.
  7. You are done!
Very few supplies are needed and they can be made up quickly!  And to make it even quicker - Stampin' Up! has introduced cut and ready card bases in a few colours.  Talk about making things easy!
