One Layer for Christmas

I'm continuing to build up my stash of Christmas cards for December - and today I have a one layer design to share.  Simple and sweet!
The sentiments from PTI Christmas Cheer are embossed in gold.  The holly and berries from WMS Festive Foliage are stamped in Simply Chartreuse and Pure Poppy.  The sentiments really shine IRL  and elevate a simple design to elegant - don't you think?  I also gold embossed the sentiment that I stamped inside.

I'm linking my card to the following challenges:

Stamps:  Festive Foliage - Waltzingmouse, Christmas Cheer - PapertreyInk
Paper:  White - PTI
Ink:  Simply Chartreuse, Pure Poppy - PTI, Versamark

Silhouette Deer

I had about 4 creative hours in my craft room today - and got two creations made.  One is for the PTI blog hop so I'll show you that one on the 25th!
Here's the one I made to post today.  It's a one layer card.  First I stenciled the background using the WV Checkmate stencil with WV Archival Fern Green and Cornflower Blue Inks.  I made the reindeer stencil using a piece of acetate with the Alterations Prancing Deer die.  I laid the home made reindeer stencil over the panel and pounced over it with a sponge and Archival Black Ink.
For the sentiment, I used a WV stencil - Happy Holidays, inking it with WV Archival Red Geranium ink.  The berries in the antlers are from WV Create a Wreath Stencil and the holly is inked in WV Fern Green using  Tim Holtz Festive stencil
To define the edges better, I sponged them with Ranger Distress Ground Espresso Ink.
I'm linking today's card to the following challenges:

Pucker Up

Happy Hump Day everyone!  Half way to the weekend - whoo hoo!!
Today I have another quick and easy Christmas card for the 'box'! 
(they were so simple to do I made 4 while I had the supplies out!)  
I've had this cute little 'mouse under the mistletoe' Amuse stamp for a long time - and I think this is just the 2nd time I've inked her up.  
I stamped my little mouse on Vintage Cream cardstock and colored her with Copics.  I added a few red berries to the mistletoe just to give a little more color to the image!

I'm linking my card to the following challenges:
Happy Little Stampers - Sept CAS challenge - colouring

One Layer Christmas Card Challenge - Anything goes - optional twist: Mistletoe.

Stamps:  Amuse

Don't Stand Under the Mistletoe

Happy Saturday everyone!   I have a quick, super CAS post today!    Did you know the mistletoe berries are actually white?  Most photos show the berries red - so perhaps people mix holly with mistletoe??
And they grow in trees - using the tree to support them. (I googled Mistletoe to find all these fun facts!)
So here is my accurately presented Mistletoe card!! I absolutely love this mistletoe stamp from the Festive Foliage set by Waltzingmouse.
I simply stamped the mistletoe and this lovely sentiment from Alpine Christmas onto a piece of Vintage Cream Linen Cardstock and was done!  One more card for the Christmas card box! (and I actually made 4 of these while I was at it!)
