Happy Tuesday and welcome! I’ve been working on card class ideas and came up with this bright and simple card.
Have you noticed the “Bells & Boughs” stamp set on page 43 of the Idea Book? It’s such a pretty Christmas set and I really love the bells and holly image and decided that it would be a great addition to this card.
It’s certainly bright and cheerful! I started with a card base of Very Vanilla, added a panel of Real Red and that lively pattern comes from the Holly Berry Bouquet designer paper.(Page 20 of the Holiday Mini catalogue).
I had fun with the Tasteful Trim die and just had to add the “bubble” trim. The holly and bells images were colored directly on the stamp, stamped onto very vanilla, cut out and popped up onto the greeting label with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
It’s bright and cheerful and actually will mail for regular postage(Canada Post). Can’t beat that!
