A quick and easy christmas card using your paper scraps

Is it really December tomorrow? Where has the year gone, it just seems to have flown.

If you've left your christmas cardmaking to the last minute for any reason or suddenly get asked by nearest and dearest to make a set of cards for them (that happen to you too lol?), then today's card is a great one for quick and easy mass production. It's also great for children to help you with and for using up those scraps of designer paper that may be cluttering up your craft cupboard.

Stamp set: Perfect Punches
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Ink: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler
DSP: Jolly Holiday
Punches: Scallop Circle, 1-3/8" Circle, 1-1/4" Square

The card blank is a 5" square of Cherry Cobbler that's been matted with a 4-1/2" square of Crumb Cake. 8 squares were punched out of Jolly Holiday DSP with the 1-1/4" Square punch and adhered direct around the edges of the Crumb Cake layer. The Perfect Punches sentiment was stamped twice onto Very Vanilla card, once with Old Olive ink and again with Cherry Cobbler ink. The Cherry Cobbler version was punched out with the Scallop Circle and the Old Olive version was punched out with the 1-3/8" Circle. Each layer was popped up on dimensionals in the centre of the card.
