Christmas Cards.....

Our fearless leader Mary says she never gets to send her Christmas cards before Christmas, so she has us do a challenge now to get ideas.  I went with a super simple card again:

I used Serendipity Stamps: Holly from the Christmas Whimsey set (411M) and Simple Merry Christmas Small (1036B).  Some how I had managed to miss the whimsey set before but I just love it... right up my alley.  First I randomly stamped the holly on white cardstock, then I colored in the holly with Copic markers.  I then mounted it all on a red cardstock base.  I put diamond glaze on the berries, and stamped Merry Christmas on a small slip of red cardstock.  I added white brads to the ends and adhered it with pop dots.

Simple and quick to get done at the last minute.  I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.
