Merry Christmas To All...

I love the simplicity of this card. 

Stamps used:  A3856         Holly Leaf
                       UMS7018    Unmounted Sentiments 1

I stamped (old olive cardstock) & cut out lots of the holly leaves.  After they were cut I sponged (old olive ink) each leaf, arranged on a double cut circle and added a ribbon, stickles & sentiment.

So here on this Christmas Eve...A Very Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year.

15 Days Until Christmas...

I can not believe it is only 15 days until Christmas.  Mailed out most of our cards, cut down our tree today in between storms & 50 - 70 mph gusts of wind.  Gotta love the coast! Oh BTW,  had to spritz the cat with water to keep him away from the tree.

Today's card uses Poinsettia Sketch stamp (G2631).  I love poinsettias & this one I stamped several times & fussy cut them. Foam squares made each of the levels pop.  I also stamped the poinsettias on Olive Green cardstock & cut out 3 of the petals for the leaves.

I raided my paper stash & found the perfect piece for this poinsettia card.  Gold stickles makes this card simple but glam!
