ASM - Holiday .....

Good evening everyone!  Are you enjoying the Olympics?  I am!  So much so, that I seem to have lost days in the last week and am running very late with my card for this week's Addicted to Stamps and More! challenge.  Our challenge this week is HOLIDAY - and while we are still surrounded by so much snow, there was only one holiday card I could make.  Christmas:

Merry Christmas - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Festive Foliage; Reverse Confetti - Bring on the Merry
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Gumball Green; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card


This is just about as clean and simple as it gets.  I based the layout on this week's CAS(E) This Sketch - CTS#64 and I used holly which is the theme at this week's Merry Monday Challenge - MM#96.  When I saw the snowman image on the CTS layout I just thought about a holly sprig!  I stamped the holly directly onto the card and used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the word Merry.  I stamped the word Christmas in red on some scrap, cut it out and attached it with dimensional tape.  I've not done the inside yet, but will add a photo once I've completed the card.

Edited to add a photo of the inside of the card:

I'm babysitting for a friend's daughter today, so won't get chance to finish it until later this evening and will photograph it tomorrow!

We are sponsored this week by StampArt Design and the winner of our challenge will receive 5 free digi images.  Our guest designer for the next couple of week's is Cathy of Cathy's Card Spot, she and the rest of the Design Team have some wonderful inspiration cards to share with you - all based on a holiday theme.  See you soon!

One of the best Christmas CAS cards I've seen. Sometimes you don't need much more as a good stamp set and a brilliant idea. And you made it. Lovely!
