Mostly Words

I hope you've had a great weekend, here in my little part of Cornwall the weather has been fabulous all weekend, lovely warm and sunny.  I've been making a few batches of Christmas cards over the weekend and it has felt a little strange working with icy images and festive sentiments during this warm weather.

I've made batches of around 5 or 6 of each design, this is one of the designs which I think is perfect for the challenge launched yesterday on the Simply Less is More Blog with the theme of  'Mostly Words' .

I used a festive words embossing folder on a plain white C6 base card to create the background.

Using a set of stamps and matching dies from Sizzix Hero Arts to stamp the Happy Holidays square and cut out using the die.  Using a set of Sizzix Framelits dies I cut the pennant shape from a scrap of Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler cardstock, and attached it behind the square.

A simple but effective design I think and ideal for batch making, good to know I've added a few more to my stock of cards for this Christmas.

Thanks for dropping by to check out my latest project,  I hope you enjoyed your visit.
