This card falls into the quick category for me. The set is the 3-Step Holly and Mistletoe set by Kitchen Sink Stamps - a Holiday favorite of mine!

The card base is Ruby Red by SU with a matte of Fruitcake designer paper. The central image - the large Holly Leaves - was stamped with Creamy Caramel, Certainly Celery and Old Olive. The center berries were stamped in Creamy Caramel and Ruby Red (first kissed off for the second layer and full-force for the top layer). I added some random highlights to the leaves with a white gel pen.

The sentiment (not yet released - so it's a sneak...) is from Never a Loss 4 Words was stamped in Chocolate Chip on Kraft paper. The paper was faux stitched - my trusty mat pack, paper piercing tool and white gel pen. A quick button finished the card.

I didn't realize until I was typing my description that I didn't use ribbon on this card. **Gasp** To be honest, when making a stack of holiday cards, I try to limit supplies a bit so it's not so costly to create and mail. I'm adding this design to my stack for easy duplication!

Who knows, I may get all my cards done in time this year! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!
