Today I would like to showcase another Christmas card with you, which was created within the matter of about 10 minutes. I can sometimes spent hours on getting just one card finished but the gorgeous new stamp set HAPPY HOLIDAYS makes creating cards a doddle!
I started stamping the tag with the "Merry Christmas" sentiment first and then added the little "Swirl" to the corners of the tag. Previously I stamped the "Holly" twice to a sheet of white bleedproof paper, coloured it in and hand cut the image, adhering it to the tag with the aid of some foam dots.
To add a little more interest to the "Swirl", I adhered a red flat backed pearl to the lower part to compliment the berries from the "Holly" image.
Finally I added the tag to my cardbase with a double helping of adhesive foam pads, to raise it off the red background and allow me to tuck some punchinella behind the tag.
