Easy Peasy Christmas Cards 52 ~ Peace and Joy with a flourish or two!

With Easy Peasy Christmas Cards, I want to inspire and give you ideas to make your holiday card making a little easier. You may find that you don’t have exactly the same materials as I but perhaps you have some that are similar which will work just fine. I encourage you to use what you have in your stash and run with it. You’ll see me use the same embossing folders, stamps, stickers, etc. as that’s what I have kicking around and/or have some attachment and like to use it a lot. :) Today’s card is no exception. (I really love this sentiment but I’m going to put it back on the shelf for now as I have others that need inky lovin’!)

I just love this Santa hat sticker by Jolee’s boutique! If you are out looking for crafty goodies, this time of year is great to find Christmas treaures marked down and/or in clearance bins. Keep an eye out for them, you never know what you can find :)

So many ideas, so little time! I put it out there last week and thank you to those who responded to my question :) I shall take a break from Easy Peasy Christmas cards for the month of December. This leaves me with two more Fridays to post Easy Peasy cards. (Why is it that when you put a deadline or a limit, that all the ideas come streaming?) That’s okay, I’ll make note of it and start up again in the New Year!

I will also post other Christmas cards on the blog too that aren’t so EP when I have a chance :)

Card measure’s 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
-stamp background stamp on kraft card stock using Color Box Frost White (this is a great white pigment ink that shows up on Kraft!)
-stamp sentiment in Crimson Archival Ink (to keep that fine detail)
-adhere blingy ribbon :)

Alright so this card is only 3 steps. Kraft lends itself to staying au naturel! The metallic velvet glitter ribbon not only adds that accent but a blingy one at that. I made a few cards and changed the red to the white ribbon to change the look and feel.
