Stamp the Typewriter Holiday Elements text block and trim it to create the perfect background for the Delicate Pine Frame.  Add a trio of glittered birds - also from the Delicate Pine Frame set - and a greeting from the Bold Christmas Greetings set for a classic  holiday greeting.

Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a simple design that's easy to mass-produce for everyone on your card list.  The "'twas the night before Christmas" text block is about 5-½" square and generously-sized for backgrounds.  It's easy to diecut two 2-½" x 3-¾" rectangles for this design.

Stamp the text block on white cardstock with Iced Spruce Distress Oxides.  Dry  the ink and cut it with a Rectangle Basics die.  Sponge the text very lightly with Delicata Shimmer Silver.  

Cut the Delicate Pine Frame from green cardstock.  Cut the birds from red glittered carstock.  

 Stamp the greeting - from the Bold Christmas Greetings set - with VersaFine Clair Tulip Red.  Cut it with the coordinating dies of the Bold  Christmas Greetings set. Cut an extra set of the words and layer it for dimension.

Attach the diecuts to side-folded A-2 card of white textured cardstock.  Add gold gem stickers.

Special thanks to everyone from Monday's MERRY + QUICK cards class t Impress.  It was fun meeting new students and catching up with my loyal Memory Box/Poppystamps/Birch Press fans too.  We used the just-released Birch Press Design triangle die sets and loved them.  Thanks Ann and Shari for helping everyone find the great products and supplies on their wishlists - and ordering more of the best-sellers!

Thanks for visiting...
