I’m really in a crunch this fall, so I’m looking for Christmas card designs that will go pretty quickly. To this end, I decided to not color my girlie from à la modes Sparkling Season today and I think this is another card I can “mass produce”.

I stamped her on Kraft card stock and then paper pieced her ornament. I found that one of my Die-namics Circle STAX dies was *just about* a perfect fit, so I cut it out with silver glitter paper and adhered it down, then added a bow cut from red glitter paper with the large bow from last month’s Die-namics Support Hope set and popped it up on bits of foam. I cut the image out with my Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX and matted it with Black Licorice card stock cut with Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX. I stamped the sentiment at the bottom on patterned paper, then did some distressing, added some lace, some ribbon, and one of my Wild Cherry buttons tied on with hemp cord.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set, stamped with Wild Cherry ink:
