Clean and Simple Christmas card

Sheena Douglass' new Christmas collection, A Little Bit Festive is one of my all time favorite holiday collections ever.  Her large, detailed stamps are so beautiful that you really don't need to add much else to your cards.  They are so fabulous all on their own.

My clean and simple card today shows off the main image of Sheena Douglass' Loving Christmas stamp set.  This image measures roughly 3 1/4 x 5 inches.  I colored my stamp with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

To add a little sparkle, I added a fine line of Golden Rod Stickles Glitter Glue around the heart ornament.

I also layered a pre-printed poinsettia patterned transparency over my stamp to create a more balanced card.  When adhering transparencies, make sure you only add glue under a colored sectioned or where you will be covering the transparency.   I covered a bit of glue I used to adhere the transparency with the small "JOY" ticket die cut.  The small stamped "Merry Christmas" text along the bottom of my card is part of the Loving Christmas stamp set.

Do you like to create clean and simple Holiday cards?  We'd love for you to share them with us on our Facebook page.

Have a wonderful day!
