Merriest Christmas Wishes

My Christmas cards were mailed about two weeks ago but it has taken until now to add them to my blog. I usually make a few of each design and add them to whatever I have made throughout the year.
This card was quick and easy to make - just a little stamping and sponging plus adhering the sequins. I used elements from a kit. I used elements from a kit. It seems as if I always have stuff leftover that goes unused so this way I was able to use almost everything. The circle was adhered using foam tape for dimension. The inside was stamped with a sentiment and decorated with coordinating holly & berries colored to match the front.

This card is being submitted to:

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #272 (Use red, green and white. Gold
and silver are optional.)

Stamps: Stampin' Up! "Watercolor Christmas" (front) and "Christmas Bliss" (inside)
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black
Markers: SU! Emerald Envy, Real Red
Cardstock: SU! Whisper White, Real Red
Misc.: Foam tape & sequins from stash


  1. Pretty sequins! Love the colors and that clean designs of this kit. :)

Yet another terrific Christmas card, shared with us at Colour Dare.
