Holiday Cheer card - Christmas Card a Day!

Here's a fast card that you can make even this week! Cut a piece of white cardstock 5 1/4" by 4" as a base for the front part of the card. No need to distress. Cut a piece of Believe patterned paper 3" by 4", I love the Santa pattern. Distress with crystal blue ink and attach flush with the bottom of the white base.
Cut a piece of crystal blue cardstock 2 1/4" by 4" distress and then dry emboss a grid pattern on it using your dry embossing tool and your trimmer groove. Sand with a sanding block. Attach to top of card base.
Cut a holiday red strip 4" by 1/2" and attach at the top of the pattern paper.
Cut a piece of white daisy cardstock 2 3/4" by 1 1/2" and a piece of holiday red cardstock 3" by 1 3/4". Distress with crystal blue ink. Using the stamp set from the Believe Workshop on the Go, stamp the base of the holly leaves in garden green ink and the outline in topiary. Stamp the berries in holiday red and the "holiday cheer" saying in holiday red as shown. Attach to the top part of the card, centered. Glue the whole card front onto a card base cut 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" and folded. If you like any of the products you see in this card, just click on the links.
