Thinking of You at Christmas. . .

I had this embossed green panel laying on my desk and thought that perhaps it was time I did something with it.

I chose a Night of Navy card base and cut an ornament from the Merry Tag Framelits using Night of Navy as well.

A quick greeting and a bit of gold twine was all this card needed.

I made 10 cards in about 10 minutes.....woo hooo!

The background was made with the Playful Background stamp set.  The ribbon is the In Color Lace and the greeting is from the Watercolor Words stamp set.

Picture Perfect. . . Washi Tape Fun. . .

I created this card using the hummingbird image from the Picture Perfect stamp set. This is a three step stamp set that allows you to stamp multiple images on top of each other to achieve beautifully detailed image results.

My card base is Mint Macaron. The Hummingbird colors are Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron. The greeting is Memento Black.

Simple, elegant....and easy to make!
