A Merry Quick Card

After I came to the frightening conclusion that I might never find the Christmas cards I'd already made and lost, panic did set in, so of course I had to quickly make some really quick cards. Obviously the quickest card to make is to fold a bit of card in half and stick a sticker on the front. But I can't do that. So, I found this little image which I'd already coloured in using my Promakers, covered a blank white card with holly paper, (All papers were from Forever Friends, Christmas Glow paper pack) added a strip if dotty paper, which I'd been practising using my Martha Stewart punch on, (I keep everything!) then used the strips of green paper that were still left by my cutter as 'ribbon' and stabbed in a brad where they crossed, edged everything in red and added glitter. The flower was left over from another card, so the only 'real' work was to stamp and emboss the 'Merry Christmas', make the insert and add a bit more dotty paper to match the front! It didn't turn out too bad, did it!
**I've been hunting for the font I used on the inside of this card and it's called Apple Butter and you can download it for free HERE
