Happy Wednesday everyone!  Nikki here, and today I'm going to share with you some ideas for very simple Christmas cards!

First up is a card that features Pink Paislee papers and dimensional sticker, brown Tim Holtz ink and a tiny stamp from the "Christmas" stamp set by Karen Foster Designs.

My next card is even more simple-- one layer, with one stamp in one color!  Too add a little extra something, I stamped the image on the inside of the card after I used a die to cut an oval from the front panel.  I glued on a plastic rhinestone to the satin bow for some extra shine.  The reindeer image is from the same set as the snowflake above.

This next bunch is a set of three skinny cards made by using (1) 8.5 x 11" piece of card stock as the base for all three, accents from a piece of decorative paper from Echo Park, and dimensional felt stickers from SEI.  The Merry Christmas sentiment is from a stamp set by Pebbles, called Welcome Christmas.
The buttons on this one are from my personal stash, but make a fun alternative border-- especially when you have a busy patterned paper that can be the star of the show!
You can't get much more simple than this!  A red background panel, small piece of patterned card stock with scallops punched at the bottom, and a tiny white card stock border, topped with a dimensional felt sticker.
This card is also super simple--  red card stock topped with a panel of patterned paper, a strip of aqua card stock for a pop of color, and a square of white topped with a dimensional felt sticker.

Happy Holidays!
Love, Nikki
