Merry Christmas Dear Friend

Merry Christmas Dear Friend, what a simple elegant message! This card was super fun, and elegant. I know it's a little common, but red, green, silver, and gold just do it for me when it comes to Christmas.

Stamps: Curly Label Punch Bundle (112966; set of 4with punch -$33.95), Itty Bitty Backgrounds (101893; set of 4 $12.95)

Paper: Whisper White: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (finished size), glorious green 4- 1/4" x 5 - 1/2", Whisper White scraps, glorious green scraps

Ink: Silver Encore Stamping Pad, Real Red Classic Stamp Pad

Stampin’ Up! Accessories: Snail Adhesive, Stampin dimensionals, 6" of 5/8" Red Grossgrain Ribbon, 6" gold elastic cord, curly label punch, Stampin Up paper snips

I first stamped the Merry Christmas dear friend in real red on whishper white scrap, set aside and stamped the dots from Itty Bitty Backgrounds with the silver encore pad on the glorious green. I then punched my stamped image with the curly lable punch and punch one with the glorious green scrap. I trimmed the edges off my stamped image right down to the stamped image to give it a layered look. I attached with snail the stamped image to the glorious green curly label. I attached the red grossgrain ribbon to card and tied the gold cord around it. I attached to glorious green to whisper white card base, then attached my curly label ensamble using stamping dimensionals. Hope you enjoy and have a great Sunday!
