Quick Christmas


Running out of time for your Christmas cards? This one is really easy and is inspired by the pouch I made for my workshop hostesses recently. It’s just a square card with a smaller square of Designer Series Paper and the stockings stamp from Gifted layered on some Old Olive cardstock.

Ideally, I’d have used markers to ink the stamp but I don’t have a Riding Hood Red one to match this paper, so I inked the stamp with the Riding Hood Red ink pad, then carefully cleaned off one of the stockings with a cotton bud and then inked it with an Old Olive marker. Then I had to clean it off carefully again before inking with Riding Hood Red, so as not to contaminate my ink pad.  So, technically a quick and easy card, but not so much when you’re making lots, like I did!
