Quick and Easy Christmas card

So this week Lindsay asked us to make a quick and easy card, something you could mass produce or make in 10 minutes.  Of course this 10 minute card only took me 1 1/2 hours to make which compared to my usual 2-3 days is a pretty good in my book lol.  I am sure now that I know how to do it I could make it a lot quicker, not 10 minutes though, it takes me that long to trim and fold my card.  But this was easy once I had my idea all nailed down, the Snow Lady required no coloring, I just pulled it all up in Word and printed it out, you could do it all on 1 page of 8/5 x 11.  So to make this quickie card I used the Snow lady from Winterland, the Uptown Houndstooth  paper was printed in 2 different sizes and the Happy Holidays is from the Vintage Christmas Labels set.  I used a Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder and  Spellbinders Classic Circles Nestabilities.  Be sure to stop by Lindsay's blog The Frugal Crafter she always has some awesome ideas to share and a freebie too.  Speaking of awesome ideas, check out the rest of the design team, they are all so talented and much quicker than me too.  Thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  14. How creative to see Houndstooth in digital; this is really snazzy, Diane. I love the snow lady - she's very pretty. Love the blue as a well coordinated accent color - the embossing is wonderful and the sentiment is really cool - great font!
