Happy Hump Day Peeps!!
Today I am sharing a fun Holiday card made with a couple of challenges in mind, first up I used the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge
and then the SU-Only Challenge this week is a Clean and Simple Holiday card Challenge.
When I saw the sketch it made my mind start to mentally file through all my SU sets to come up with a small element for those little circles. I wanted do something a bit different, and I remembered the Stampin Up set called Happy Hour would be great and even better it has a cute little Christmas saying to go along with it.
This card is super simple to put together, I did at first use the chevron or zig zag EF for my background, but when I came to the sentiment, it just wouldn't work. So I reverted to an old favorite the perfect dot EF. I stamped the part of the sentiment I wanted to use and then embossed.
The DSP on here is from the wonderful Festival of Prints pack.
The only fussy apart about this card is cutting out the holly leaves, but they don't really take that much time.
I debated about adding the ribbon.......you all know it is hard for me to make a card without any....LOL!!
I ended up adding some Cherry Cobbler seam binding but it is just as cute without and leaving it off makes it easier to mail too. What do you think with our without?
I colored the little "holly berries" with a marker.
Can you believe how quickly the years has gone, next week is Thanksgiving and then Christmas will be here before we have enough time.
Next week hubby sees another doctor for some more surgery that needs to be done ASAP, we will know more after his appointment on the 20th, but his heart doc say it needs to be done soon, please keep a good thought for us and say a prayer if you a so inclined.
Thanks for stopping by!
