Very Merry...

Another Xmas card you ask????  Well, it is getting close to that time of the year & me being me, I like to have my cards in the mail the first week in December.

Inside...

The layout for this card has been around the blog world for some time, so I have to say it is not my idea, but a combination of many cards & layouts I've seen over time.  I love both stamp sets I've used on this card, so very versatile without being over the top.

Again, I've created a non-traditional card.  Gotta love non-tradition.....

Base Card - Early Expresso - 8 1/4" x 4 1/4" or 21cm x 10.5cm - Scored & folded in half longways
Layer 1 - Blushing Bride - 5 3/4 x 4" or  14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Whisper White - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 - DSP - 5 1/2" x 3 3/4" or 13.5cm x 9cm
Layer 4 - Early Exresso - 3 1/4" x 2 1/4" or 8cm x 5.5cm
Layer 5 - Whisper White - 3 1/8" x 2 1/8" or 7.5cm x 5cm

I cut my DSP into 3 pieces, being careful that I didn't mix the sections so that I knew which order they would be adhered to the card.  I actually didn't want them all to be the same size, but the 1st & 2nd are.....

These pieces were adhered to Whisper White leaving a small border of Whisper White around each piece, then to Blushing Bride using Snail Ahesive.

Envelope...
I stamped 3 images onto the smaller piece of Whisper White using Old Olive & Blushing Bride Inks.  I drew the lines at the top of the images with my SU Markers - Old Olive & Blushing Bride.  I adhered this piece to the top of the DSP with Snail Adhesive.

I stamped my greeting onto Whisper White scrap piece with Early Expresso Ink, punched it out with my Small Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Early Expresso which had been punched using Large Oval Punch.

I punched a hole in either side of the ovals, run ribbon through them & across the card, tucked my ends under & adhered the whole piece to the Base Card - Early Expresso.

To pop the card a little, I applied Basic Rhinestones to the images & to the ribbon at the greeting.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Short & Sweet, Tree Trimmings
Ink - Early Expresso, Blushing Bride, Old Olive
Cardstock - Whisper White, Early Expresso, Blushing Bride
DSP - Letters to Santa 
Punches - Small Oval, Large Oval
Ribbon - 1/8" Taffeta - Early Expresso

Until next time, Enjoy!

This is lovely. I like the kind of non-traditional colours. As usual inside your card is gorgeous too.
