12 Cards of Christmas - Card 5

I warned you that you would be seeing a lot of this set! Here it is again "Season of Joy", and finally, some traditional Christmas colours - Real Red and Old Olive.
Super-easy, this one. Just stamp the background (Poinsettia flower) using Versamark ink. Then stamp the snowflake stamp on piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with River Rock ink. Stamp the Christmas tree in Old Olive ink. The star has been stamped separately on a scrap of very Vanilla cardstock and cut out (it's the star that says 'hand stamped' underneath it). I stamped Merry Christmas' on another scrap of Very Vanilla and punched it out with the Large Oval punch, and sponged around the edges. A piece of Wide Real Red Grosgrain is the finishing touch. Easy peasy, and all with one stamp set!

I've done the fold for this card at the top of the card (cut your cardstock lengthways at 10.5cm). You still get 2 cards from an A4 sheet, but the spine is on the short side. Lots of people hang Christmas cards from blinds or on string, and this way, the card doesn't have to hang sideways!

Stamps: Season of Joy
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive, River Rock, Versamark
Cardstock: Real Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Other: Large Oval Punch, Wide Real Red Grosgrain ribbon, sponge dauber
