Quick and Easy Christmas Card

Happy Thursday, Everyone! Have you all finished your Thanksgiving leftovers yet? Sadly, I didn't have any to finish (we went to hubby's parent's house) but we certainly haven't starved, by any means. ;)

Today I have a quick and easy card to make for Christmas. This would be a great one to make in batches. I started with the Harlequin Paper from Lindsay's Black and White Papers set. I printed out a small sheet (scaled to size) and then printed the stamp. You could actually print a few of each on one sheet and save time and money. I cut out the paper and attached 3 red brads in the lower right hand corner and glued it down on a black card base. I ran a strip of tombow adhesive on the edge and across the front and covered it with red ribbon. I cut out the stamp with my nesties, glued it down and done!

You can find the stamp set on Lindsay's Blog - and here's the best part - it's FREE! You can find the paper along with several others in this set in Lindsay's Mygrafico shop for only $2.99!!
Check to see what the rest of the Design Team has whipped up for you today! And I think Lindsay will have a new freebie for you, so you can start with her! Have a great day!!

What a great graphic card! And how cool that if this were done in muliples, it would use up so much less ink, in B&W...very economical (important for large sets of multiples, right?! :>). But, pocketbook restraint aside, I love clean & graphic looks, like this!! :>
