clean & simple sunday no. 53

I have been working on Christmas card samples and wanted to share this one with you today for C&SS…

The base card is in bermuda, with a panel of lichen covering most of it. I used my snowflake trio dies to cut out the smallest of the three snowflakes for this little 3-1/2 x 5″ card. The sentiment is from the holiday tag stamp set and I embellished with a cherry sparkle and some cherry polka dot organdy. Although we’re not even quite through the summer I find myself drawn to the holiday stamp sets, probably because if I’m going to make my cards this year I know I’m going to have to get started soon… A|S provides so many great holiday images to create clean, simple Christmas cards that are sure to delight your friends and family with handmade goodness!
