Hello Friends,
How was your weekend?? I hope you guys got all your Christmas decorations up!!

I know that this time of year is a very busy time for all of us and sometimes we don't have much time to go all out on our Christmas cards so I thought I would share another SUPER SIMPLE card to mass produce.  

This card shows that you can take any stamp set and turn it into a Christmas card with a simple Christmas sentiment and color!!  

Challenges:


I used a non Christmas image and turned it into a Christmas
 card by using Real Red and a Merry Christmas sentiment from 
the stamp set Coming to Bethlehem


I embossed the Crumb Cake with the image already stamped 
and then inked some of the Polka Dots with Craft Whisper 
White to make it appear like if it was "SNOWING" I also 
heat embossed the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler


Stampin' Up! Supplies for this Project
Stamps- Come to Bethlehem, Forever Young  Inks/Markers- Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Early Espresso, Versamark, Craft Whisper White, Paper- Crumb Cake, Real Red, Tools- Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Heat Tool, Emboss Buddy, Cherry Cobbler Emboss Powder,  Accessories- Pearls
