It's Christmas

It's CHRISTMAS in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
Well,  I can't believe Thanksgiving is over.  Now we start gearing up for my favorite holiday-CHRISTMAS!  I love all the decorations, Glitz and Glam, all the people out getting all the deals and that's how we felt last night when we went out shopping for Black Friday.  Everything all decorated up for Christmas and everyone wearing there Christmas clothes, hats, & scarfs.  It was fun.  But today I am paying for it.  I'm so  tired it' is hard for me to get motivated today.    So this that being said- here is an easier Christmas card that really didn't take alot of time to make.  So if your making alot or even a little you can get the job done in a Jiffy. (just don't stay out all night before hand) hehe

Run your Whisper White cardstock thru an embossing folder.  (Pg 189 in the big catalog has lots of embossing folders to choose from -Petals-a-Plenty makes a nice Christmas folder)  I stamped the Heart of Christmas stamp on Whisper white and then cut around it to the desired size I wanted.  Placed my saying on top of some Gumball green and cut that out.  Punched out a scalloped edge using the Cherry Cobbler c/s. Used dimensionals to adhere saying to card.   Using Gumball Green I cut out a piece of paper 4 1/4 x 2  measured in almost an inch from the edge of the paper and in the middle of the paper marked a dot.  Cut in from the edge to the dot on both sides of paper.  To make the top one I layed the Cherry Cobbler paper on top of the Gumball Green and marked a dot in the middle .  And cut it out the same as the top piece.
Stamped the snowflake stamp with Bashful Blue ink and used the 1 1/4 scalloped punch.  Stamped the Merry Christmas with Cherry Cobbler ink punched it out with the 3/4 " circle punch.  Used a dimensional to adhere to the top of the snowflake.
Hope you enjoyed this card.  Pretty and easy to make.
