Season's Greetings!

Happy Holidays!

It may be nearing the end of August but I am definitely in the Christmas card making spirit.  This card was so easy to make and the best part: it was all made from scraps- yay!

The card base is white card stock, blue snowflake scrap paper was distressed along the edges and applied to the base, another layer of white (distressed) and then some scrap wood grain (distressed).  Spellbinders Venetian Motifs was used with white paper and Season's Greetings (JustRite set Christmas Vintage Labels One) was stamped and embossed.  Scrap grey satin/sheer ribbon was applied and a blue button with white twine was adhered.  Four silver pearls were placed on corners.  Voila! - a quick and easy Christmas card.

Feel free to see the other cards I have made this year.  Just click on the Christmas page tab above.  If all goes as planned, there will be plenty of Christmas cards on that page by December!
