Country Time Christmas

Hello Friends! It's Diane with you today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.

After making  more involved cards lately, I decided to share with you an easy card today. Easy, but it still packs a punch so to speak.

I started out with a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" white card stock. I added color using the 2011 Winter Seasonal Ink Pads by Tim Holtz. I sponged Spun Sugar on first, then Evergreen Bough below. 

Using a black ink I stamped an image from Country Time Christmas by Flourishes on top of the sponged ink.  I like how it gives a soft, muted look to the card front.
I went over various parts of the trees with a Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust Clear Pen, giving a bit of shimmer to all the trees. 

I used 1/2" Scor-Tape to mount the card front to a black piece of card stock, and 1/2" Scor-Tape once again to mount the piece to the front of my card.

To add a bit of texture, I cut my deer from cork,  using a die from Memory Box called Deer Trio, only using the doe and fawn. I used the Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust Clear Pen to make a few spots on the fawn.

To finish the card I added a bit of Doodle Twine, tied on a bead. Just these few steps for a fast and pretty holiday card.

I wanted to mention the Country Time Christmas stamp set has several beautiful Christmas sentiments included with it, which will help making your Christmas cards quick and easy. 

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you back here soon!!

A very pretty and quick card! Thanks Diane!
