Merry and Bright


I am on a roll with quick Christmas cards thanks to some great challenges. Anyone who knows me, knows I am a slow card maker. It takes me forever deciding what stamps, embellishments, or papers I want to use. That is not happening this week because of all the holiday hustle and bustle.

So, I share with you another quick make.

I had the assistance using the fun colors over at the ColourQ Challenge blog.
I started with a Whisper White card base and then stamped Glorious Green on Green Galore panel using DeNami Designs Medium Polka Dot background stamp.  I added a Real Red panel to complete the top layer. For my focal image, I used Regal Rose ink to stamp DeNami Designs Medium Brushed Flake.

Next finishing off with a cute sentiment, button, red twine, and a little pink bling in the center of my snowflake.

Alrighty friends, keeping this short and sweet.  
Stamps:  DeNami Designs, MPS
Paper: CS: Stampin'  UP!
Ink: Stampin' UP!
Other: Buttons: Stampin' UP!, Marvey Punches, Spellbinder die. Rhinestone and Pearl: Hero Arts

I am a slow card maker, too, Tammy. (that 45 minute snowflake card I did earlier this week was an anomaly!)
It bums me out that I can't crank out many creations in one week.

THat color combo is a GREAT one for the holidays! I do love pink and green, and a little red thrown in makes it more festive.

Hope you've got your gift buying all finished!

I am a slow card maker too. I can stare (...) for hours at my papers and it's always a challenge to choose a few :) You are not alone :)
Your card? Bright colors, polka dots and an amazing snoeflake. A jaw dropper.....guaranteed. Love it!

This is so cute! I love the look of the green and red with splashes of pink. I wouldn't have thought to combine them - but it works SO well!
Tammy, I am the world's slowest card maker! I have such a difficult time making choices too!
