Simple Merry Christmas

'Tis the Season posted their next challenge - it's a sketch this time (TTS3).

I love how they always have an optional trimming; this one is "stripes." That's what led me to use this paper - it has a few different striped patterns.

Since this paper is like, I dunno, 6 years old or something, I just had to try and use it up - so of course I made a coordinating envelope!

This is just the first of many cards I made using this layout. It is nice and simple, and lends itself well to using up large pieces of DSP. This particular card is one of the more plain ones I made - they will get more exciting as I continue to post!

Stamps: Mixed Medley 
Paper: Dashing DSP, River Rock CS, Old Olive Textured CS, Real Red CS, Old Olive CS, Very Vanilla CS
Colors: Real Red Ink, Old Olive Ink
Tools: Paper Snips (for flagged end), 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, Envelope Punch Board
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals
