First Christmas Card

I know many of you are very organised and start your Christmas cards really early, but I am not one of those people - I'm usually finishing off the last of mine on Christmas Eve.  Not the best idea!  Well, at least I've made a start with this card today.

The stamps are another set from Paula Pascual (you may have noticed from previous posts that I've used some of her sentiment stamps quite a lot lately). I love this set - it's just stylish and gorgeous.

This was such a quick card to make  - I already had the border cut out (using my Silhouette) and the embossed lines done - so the stamping literally took minutes.  I used a Boysenberry Versacolor ink pad to stamp the images and then  a 1" circle punch to cut them out and attached with 3D foam.

It's a plain and simple card, so I'm going to enter it into the allsortschallenge for this week - the theme is 'Plain and Simple'.
