Stamps: none, can you believe that?!
Cardstock: Whisper White and Real Red, and Garden Green from the Regals Collection Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink: Garden Green and Real Red
Accessories: Big Shot with Finial Press Embossing Folder, Ornament Punch, Mat Pack and Piercing Tool, Sponge Daubers, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, and a retired skinny silver cording
This card has wonderfully clean and simple lines to it. Very classic looking. After the ornament was embossed, I added a tiny smudge of color to enhance the embossing and make it stand out. There is also sponging around the edges of the Garden Green layer. The card is cut a little smaller than the regular size. The size is 5" x 4 1/4", because I liked the look of the layering dimensions for this card better this way. Adding some piercing in all four corners of the Real Red layer gives this simple card just a little bit more textural interest.
Thanks for stopping by again. Hope this gives you some ideas towards making your own cards for Christmas this year. This would be a great modern looking card for you to try. Hope to see you again soon! Comments are always welcome...

The only stipulation for the award is to list 6 other blogs that I visit and find inspiration when I visit them. Here's my list of blogs:
1. Ilina Crouse - My Creations
2. Janine Tinklenberg - Stamps, Paper, Scissors
3. Lee Conrey - Stampinglee Yours
4. Mary Fish - Stampin' Pretty
5. Sarah-Jane Kale' - Janeybell Designs
6. Dawn Griffiths - DOStamping with Dawn
Each of these ladies' blogs are fun and inspiring, and their styles of stamping are entirely different! But that's what makes it fun - to see what others are making and getting out of your own comfortzone to try something new. Hope you take some time to check out each one of these blogs and see for yourself how talented these ladies are!
Thanks for stopping by and I'll be getting back to my regularly scheduled card postings soon - hopefully tomorrow! Sharon
