My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Quick -N- Easy Christmas Card

Hi All!

It's Monday again...Are you in the full swing of things for Christmas?

I mentioned that I've been working on cards for myself, and while I'm excited to show you this, I'm also embarrassed. Excited because it is so cute (in my humble opinion!) and embarrassed because it is sooo super simple! Which is exactly what you need when you want to mass produce a Christmas card.

I also mentioned I scored some inexpensive, 2 sided paper in my post here, well this is the other side! Doesn't it look like lots of different strips of matching paper? I know, right? Nope. Just one piece. Love it!

How great is the simple medallion embellishment I made from the Christmas Cupcake Wrapper set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff? Isn't it cute the way the holly berries match the paper? Here is a close up of the sparkle I added to the berries.

To make this card you will need:
1 card 4 1/4" X 5 1/2"
1 piece of patterned paper 4"x 5 1/4"
1 piece of ribbon
Circle punch 1 5/8" and the Stampin' Up! Scallop Punch

To attach the ribbon, I cut a small slit in the fold of the card and threaded it through and tied a bow in front.

Check out what Lindsay and everyone else has made for a quick and easy Christmas idea!








Details not mentioned above-Paper:Bazill and Heidi Grace, Stickles, Gel Pen, and ribbon from my supplies.

FYI- Lindsay has just released some new sets, as well as a new FREEBIE in her store!
