Hi everyone!  Today I have a real easy Christmas card to share with you.  I've been in such a Christmas mood lately I can't seem to get enough Christmas cards lately, good thing too because Christmas is only 31 days away!

I love this layout and I know I use it a lot, but it's perfect for so many images.  I received this image through an image swap on splitcoast stampers.  This image is from Great Impressions and it's called Pepperment and Holly Border.

I simply colored in the image using my SU markers and then I decided to add some glitter on the berries of my image.  I also added a wavy border (using my SU marker) along the top and bottom edge of my image. 

My certainly celery layer was punched using my scallop trim border punch and then I added a ribbon at the top of my card.  I decided to use white ribbon and then I tied scraps of certainly celery and old olive ribbon which I colored using my SU markers- that's a great idea if you don't have exactly the ribbon color that you need.

Have a great rest of the day, I have some house work to get caught up on and my husband's grandmother is coming over to spend some time with the children. 

Stamps:  Pepperment and Holly Border- Great Impressions
Card Stock: White. Real Red, Certainly Celery
Ink: Black Stazon
Supplies: Ribbon, SU Markers, SU Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, 2 Way Glue Pen, Scallop Trim Border Punch Pin It
