an easy Christmas card for busy Moms

Yesterday's Christmas card was pretty fancy, so I thought today I'd share a simple Christmas card, that still gets the "wow" you want from the person you're sending it to:
This is a great card to try if you need to make several in a short amount of time. You can punch out the DSP squares while you're helping the kids with homework, watching TV, or "listening" to your hubby talk about sports - just keep the squares in a little container until you are ready to use them. If you start now, you might have two or three made before December! *wink, wink* By using the Postage Stamp punch, you get a faux stitched look between the squares, saving you the time of adding faux stitching later with a marker. Adhering the pieces to the 3-3/4 x 5" card stock layer (Very Vanilla on this card) is easy - the hard part is choosing in which order you want the squares!  ;} 
After adhering all of the layers and pieces, choose a sentiment and an embellishment, and you're done! You don't even need Dimensionals (gasp) to finish this card. 

If you're really liking this Candlelight Christmas DSP (and I know you loved the ornaments on yesterday's card), I invite you to check out the October Promotion from Stampin' Up! 

If you have any questions at all, feel free to email me  -  jenn.inklings@gmail.com  -  and I will be happy to help you. Have a wonderful day!!
