Quick and Easy Christmas Card

Today is the official start to the new Holiday Catalog with Stampin Up and that means it's also time for a quick and easy Christmas card idea featuring some new fun products!

We will be using my new favorite background stamp, the Buffalo Check background – LOVE THIS!!  And we will be pairing it with another stamp set for our sentiment.

Here is what we are making today:

This card should take you less than 5 minutes to make, you can assembly line the pieces to be more efficient if you want to make a handful of these – and another big thing…

There is no die cutting and no punching!  So if you are short on time, or you are just getting into this craft and you don't have the big, fancy toys – with this one, you don't need them.  It's VERY economical, there will be a cost breakdown for you below.
