A Merry Little Christmas

Hi friends! Today, I am starting a new challenge for myself! I will be posting every day this week to show how you can use some very simple ingredients in creating lovely Christmas cards and tags. Simplicity is key, this time of year, as we all know. With the hoards of Christmas cards I have to make (and I'm sure you do too), I decided the best way to tackle the task would be to keep it simple! I've picked a color palette and a few key items and I thought I'd just dive right in! No fuss - just tons of crafting fun!

Look what I've come up with:

Here's a sneak of the several variations of cards and tags I've created. I cannot wait to show them all to you! 
I thought about waiting until tomorrow to feature the first card, but that would be no fun, right?
So here is the first card!

I've used a few beautiful papers from the Authentique Wonder collection, Kraft card stock and a lot of stamping and inking using one of my have Distress Ink colours, Frayed Burlap.

The stamped sentiment is form a gorgeous Christmas stamp set by Technique Tuesday...Love it to bits!

I used an EK Success punch for the black border...

And a beautiful sentiment from Authentique notables!
Meet me back here tomorrow for the next card!
