Wow! We are on Day 9 already! Christmas will be here before you know it (in 51 days to be exact). Did you see the snow this AM? WOOT!!
Today's card is easy-peasy, quietly elegant, and whips up in a matter of minutes:
I used Very Vanilla card-stock to create the card, and layered Crumb Cake on top of it. This gives a soft feel to the background. For the ornaments, I used my go-to stamp with the punch for one, and for the other, I just used the punch to cut out an ornament from co-ordinating designer paper (sponged red ink around the edges for added definition). I "suspended" the ornaments from golden cord and put an olive green bow on one. I think the simplicity of the "Merry Christmas" script fits in very well with the overall tone of this card.
You could easily re-produce this card in just about any Christmas colour combination and it would be lovely. Or, go for the dramatic and use black and silver! Wouldn't THAT be amazing?
