- The quick and easy image! The Sleigh image from Open Sleigh was inked with Midnight Muse and stamped onto Naturals Ivory card stock. No need to use the Color Spritzer Tool with this card stock...the speckles are built in!
- The quick and easy sentiment! The Merry Christmas sentiment from Open Sleigh was inked in Early Espresso and stamped onto Naturals Ivory card stock. Two quick snips transforms a plain strip into a banner!

I hope you enjoyed today's card. It really is quick and easy to create. With it's decidedly country feel, it is a great way to use richly-colored, small patterned paper in lieu of Christmas paper. What do you think? Won't you let me know in today's comment? Your comments are important to me, and I do read each and every one. And remember, if you ever have any questions about the cards that I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away...
