Black & White Merry Christmas Card

Today’s card is super quick and easy (QAE.) It’s also clean and simple (CAS.) There isn’t even any stamping! So you can crank out a bunch of these babies in no time. I used the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies for the sentiment, and Black Foil Sheet for the background. Unfortunately the shiny quality doesn’t show in the photo, but it’s very nice. The “snow” is lots of little white enamel dots from the Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes. These embellishments have now sold out, but you can use Basic Pearl Jewels or Frosted & Clear Epoxy Shapes just as easily.

Here’s what I made:

Friends Making Christmas Bright Note Card & Envelope

Sometimes I forget about the precut and scored Note Cards and Envelopes available from Stampin’ Up! They make card making so fast and easy! Why did I remember to use them this time? I had a scrap of paper that was just the right size, so I thought Hey, this should go on a Note Card! I knew I wanted to use the Making Christmas Bright stamp set (look for another card I made with it tomorrow) and today’s card was born. Well, created, not born.
