Good Morning! Today I'm planning on finishing my holiday decorating, but before I do I wanted to post another card that we made at my cookie party. Today's card is almost an exact case from the Stampin' Up! idea book & catalog. In fact this card is the reason I bought this stamp set. I saw the sample card and I figured it would be an easy, quick holiday card and if you leave the ribbon off it would be perfect for the holiday cards you intended to mail.

My red riding hood card base is stamped using red riding hood ink. It's tone on tone ink and card stock so it's hard to see in my photo, but when I was making my card I felt that the background needed a little something.

I used the Stampin' Up! top note die to cut my vanilla card stock for the inside and outside of my card.  I even stamped the bottom right corner on the inside of my card (as you can see in the photo above).  Stamping the inside of my cards isn't something I usually do, but I like the way it turned out on this card.

Then to complete my card I simply stamped my images using old olive ink in the two corners and stamped my season's greetings sentiment using red riding hood ink.  Next, I added my ribbon and placed my top note layer onto my card base using dimensionals and that was it!

Have a great rest of the day!  See you tomorrow!
