1st Christmas Card of 2014!

Yes, you read it right!  Since I ran out of time last year, I decided to start making a few Christmas cards every month, so that by the time Christmas comes around, I don't feel the major stress of getting all my cards done on time.  The inspiration for this is a few Christmas Challenge Blogs I follow.  I thought it was great way to get started ...

I made this card for the CAS challenge at Christmas Inspirations.  I don't think it gets more Clean and Simple than this ...
I made it red and white - both cardstocks are from Bazzill.
The embossing folder I used is from Darice.
I made a second mat, stamped the image with Versamark and sprinkled Red Tinsel embossing powder over it. Then heat embossed it for the beautiful sparkly look. I cut out the centre and pop dotted it on the original mat.

For the inside, I used the same cardstocks and a stamp by Paper Inspirations called Christmas Peace.
So there you go, my first Christmas card for 2014! Clean and Simple and extremely easy :-)
Thanks for visiting today. I hope you come back soon.
Till next time,
Happy Crafting!
