Jolly Holiday

With Christmas a few months away I have a lot of people who are already looking for Holiday card ideas and so I am already incorporating holiday cards in my workshops.  Today's card is based on a card done by demonstrator Heather Summers.  Although she created a Joy Fold card I made this a bit simpler as I had several first time stampers.

The card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Old Olive.  I trimmed one end by about 1 3/8" and added a Pear Pizzaz layer to the inside of the card so that it shows where the trimmed front would have been.

I added Cherry Cobbler and Jolly Holiday designer paper to my card front and then created a separate layer that overlaps and goes off the end of the card front.

I stamped my images from the Delightful Decorations set in Old Olive ink onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I then stamped another image in Cherry Cobbler on some scrap cardstock and punched it out using the Ornament punch.  I popped this up over the Old Olive ornaments.  Using a ruler, I drew in 'string' with the Pear Pizzaz marker.  The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set and stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink.  I attached the image to a layer of Cherry Cobbler and then adhered this to my card front.

I love the fresh fun look of this card.  The Jolly Holiday designer paper really makes the card.
