Merry Christmas

My second card today was created for the latest Time Out challenge. The challenge this week is to create a holiday card with no stamping for the focal image. I created my card by layering on a piece of Stampin' UP cherry cobbler cardstock onto my white card base and added some white faux lines around the edge using my Signo uni-ball white gel pen. I die cut a stitched edge rectangle panel out of white cardstock that I got at Staples using a Gina Marie Designs die. I popped it up off of the card using 3M foam tape. I die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment using a Simon Says Stamp die and some more of the cherry cobbler cardstock. I then die cut the wreath and holly leaves using a Memory Box die set and some forest green cardstock from Hobby Lobby and cherry cobbler and early espresso cardstocks from Stampin' UP. I mounted all of the images directly onto the focal panel using my Zig 2 Way Glue Pen. This card was simple and easy and I hope you like it!

A great design - I especially like how you added the white stitching to the card base - it really completes the card! Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out! Jill
