A simple card for the upcoming holidays

Hi Friends,

Today I have a quick card for you that will take no time at all to make and easy to mass produce for your christmas card list. I am using the Berry Flower Die-namites die for this card. This die on its own has a beautiful spring/summer look to it and I have used it in a previous card project. Today, however, I thought I would take this die and see if I could put a holiday spin on it. Here is the Berry Flower Die:

And here is my finished card:

What’s Christmas without a little sparkle? I took my red glitter copic pen and added some sparkle to the flower die cuts and the green glitter copic pen around the edge of the white iridescent card. I stacked the three floral die cuts together and secured with a brad and then fanned them out. I put a large glue dot on the back of the cluster and stuck it to a band of green glitter cardstock.

To finish of the design I added a few ink splatters at the top right corner and at the bottom corners.

The card probably took less time to make than picking out a store-bought card. I hope this inspires you to hand make some cards this holiday season!
