Quick and Easy Christmas Cards Day 1

I used these stamps

It's quick and easy Christmas cards this week for the Stampotique Challenge, full details can be found for the challenge by clicking HERE

Nellie is the hostess and she has this to say about her challenge

"It's that time of the year that you know you should have started earlier with your Christmas cards. So now you have to come up with some quick and easy (yet stunning) Christmas cards"

I have decided to make and blog a card a day for this challenge all this week until the next challenge starts. (are you getting the clue here that I have made no cards at all!!)
All my cards will take no longer than 15 minutes to make. (not including thinking time)

Today's offering is a simple Kraft Card, card. with the snowflake stamped directly in black ink, various bits cut out of the design, a quoted stamped on a bit of book margin and added to the bottom, then some doodling with black and white pens to finish. Simples.

Full details of the Challenge this week, how to enter and the prize can been seen HERE.

Enjoy the challenge this week.

Happy crafting, Carol xx

Ooh Carol, I really love this. Yes, it's a simple design but so effective on the Kraft card. I love the addition of the white gel pen. Always look great on Kraft card. Gosh, I can't wait to see your other ideas. I haven't got this particular Stampotique snowflake but would love to try this with a TH stamp I have. Would you mind if I copied your idea? Obviously I would tribute you as the designer!

Great quick and easy card for this weeks SDC, I challenged myself last year to 12 Cards for Christmas starting on the first of December and I'm going to do the same this year, it's great for me as if forces me to do the cards and get them in the post just in time. I hope you have as much fun in your challenge to yourself as I did. x
