Happy Holidays!

Hello everyone!  It's always great to get a jump on holiday cards, and this card using the Creative Cafe' Home for the Holidays set, is a great one to make in multiples to get some of those cards made ahead of time!

Base: 5&1/2" by 4&1/4" kraft cardstock.

First Layer:  5&1/4" by 4" piece of green cardstock, glue to card base using Scrap Happy Glue.

Next Layer 5&1/4" by 2" piece of stripe patterned paper, glue about 1/4" from the left side of first layer.

Center Panel: 4" by 3" piece of holly patterned paper and a 4" by 1" strip of the same paper, but use the reverse side, and glue along the left edge of the holly paper to create a 1/4" red border.  Add a strip of green trim along the edge of the holly paper, glue to the front of the card.

Cut a 2&3/4" by 1&3/4" piece of white cardstock, and stamp the happy holidays sentiment around the edges using Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.  TIP:  you can use a small scrap of paper or cardstock to mask off the words if needed when you are stamping around the edge, so you don't overlap the words.  Then mat this piece on a piece of 3" by 2" green cardstock.

Stamp the gingerbread house in Black Tuxedo Memento Ink, and color with markers, and fussy cut out.  Foam tape to the center top of the happy holiday piece.

Stamp the Merry Christmas sentiment using Mowed Lawn Distress Ink on white cardstock. Trim to a banner, and mat on red patterned paper (back of holly pattern) and glue under the house on the panel.  Foam tape entire panel to the holly paper on the front of the card.

Thanks for stoppin' by today!  Stop back soon for more inspiration!!
