Only 149 days....

until Christmas! Yes, I know it's entirely too early to think about it, but I'm challenging myself to get a head start on my holiday cards this year. The last 2 years, I made about 100 cards each season, and being a notorious procrastinator, I waited too late and subjected myself to a Christmas card cram session. So when I was checking out the latest Make a Card Monday video on KWerner's fabulous blog, I was totally inspired to pull out my Baroque background stamp that has only been inked once since I bought it. The new In Color, Riding Hood Red, paired with Handsome Hunter, is perfect for a traditional holiday card. It may be hard to tell in the photo, but the background image is clear embossed and adds such an elegance to the card. Enjoy!
Stamps: Baroque, Holidays & Wishes
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Handsome Hunter, Whisper White, Brushed Silver
Ink: Versamark, Handsome Hunter
Accessories: clear embossing powder, heat tool, Boho Blossom punch, silver brad, stampin' dimensionals

I agree simple card but love the touch of embossing it makes it very elegant. I agree with Tiffany might enable me to buys this one too.

This would be a great card to make multiples of! I made a Christmas card, but it wasn't intentional...
