~ Handmade Red, Green & White Christmas Holiday Card ~

Today I decided to start making cards for the upcoming holidays. This particular card creation is pretty quick to make & would be a GREAT design for a newbie card creater. I get a lot of card ideas from scrapbook pages I've created; page layouts are perfect inspirations to get those creative juices flowing! ;)

All of the products & supplies used for this project are from Close To My Heart:
 ~ Pear (green) cardstock
 ~ Cranberry (red) cardstock
 ~ White Daisy cardstock
 ~ Cranberry ink pad
 ~ Pear ink pad
 ~ Designer Holiday Ribbon Rounds Cranberry & White 1/8" ribbon - retired CTMH
 ~ Festive Thoughts acrylic stamp set - retired CTMH
 ~ Festive Frills acrylic stamp set - retired CTMH

The stamp sets are a couple of my favorites.... I have always liked using holly images in my art work and for decorating. The set also has images of doves, another truly favorite stamping image of mine. There's also a wreath image that I used to create a cute pocket card that I will post when I add the finishing touches.

Thank you for dropping in here to see my card creations and, hopefully, you've seen something to inspire you to create a beautiful card of your own.

Your thoughts & comment are greatly appreciated.
