Today I have a real quick and easy Christmas card to share with you. My mother-in-law found this stamp set for me at a yard sale this past summer and I thought this image would be really cute for some Christmas cards.

I stamped the image and then I colored it using my SU markers. I wanted to make my card look more Christmasy so I layered my image onto a piece of real red card stock.

I didn't want the rest of my card too look busy, so I decided for my background I would just addd a few score lines using my score-pal and along the very bottom of my card I added two rows of paper piercing. I love the added interest that paper piercing gives to my cards without it being an involved technique; and it's so quick and easy to do.
I hope you all have a great rest of the day; I'm off to put supper on the table. We are having spaghetti and meatballs tonight; one of my favorites. Tomorrow looks like a great crafting day for me because it's supposed to rain all day long and I won't be taking the kids outside to play.

Stamps: Penguin Pals
Card Stock: White, Real Red
Ink: Black Stazon
Supplies: Ribbon, SU Mat Pack, Paper Piercing Tool, SU Markers, Score-pal
Technique: Paper Piercing, Dry Embossing Pin It
