Back to simple...

I wanted to do a couple of simple cards using a couple of Christmas sets by Rubber Stamp Tapestry, Holiday Joy set and NOEL set.
You get the main word, e.g. NOEL plus some flowers and foliage single pegs.

This was a pre- deckled edge card inked using Versacolor split pea and opera pink and Brilliance Graphite black. A simple addition of black diamond stickle and gorgeous pink ribbon finished this quick card.

I used one of my new Cuttlebug embossing strips for the circle designs and my scoreboard to create the panels at the bottom. This time I used Brilliance rocket red and Adirondack citrus inks. (and some Xmas red stickle!)
I love this wide green satin ribbon and I combined it here with Prima flowers and a button from my stash.

I did another 3 or 4 simple designs using these stamps, so watch this space for a few more quick ideas.
