In my opinion, it is NEVER too early for Christmas! Let me introduce you to the very first Christmas card of the 2016 Holiday Season. Seriously. Yes, I know it is June. But I just couldn't help myself. In fact, this wasn't the first Christmasy project I created yesterday. Yup! I started designing favors for the "Annual Kortonick Christmas Bash". The date is set, the menu is coming together, I have some decor and entertainment planned, and the guest list is growing! I know, I know, it's only June. But December is gonna sneak up on us!
Anyway....I recently spotted some sort of project on Pinterest that featured the little die-cut tree on today's card. It's from the Always an Adventure Stamp Set. And, you may have overlooked that set. I kinda did at first. It doesn't immediately look like something you'd use a lot. So why invest in the bundle, right? There are SO many adorable bundles in the new catalog. But, when I spotted that tree, I immediately thought Simple Christmas Card! And this EXACT card is what I immediately imagined.
Well, I actually imagined it with a different "Merry Christmas" font, but the one in my mind must be retired! My "current" options are kinda limited until the Holiday Catalog comes out in a couple of months. But, this totally works, right?
Is it too simple? It's kinda the opposite of the patriotic explosion from yesterday. Many of you commented, emailed, or messaged me on Facebook with one word: "Wow". I honestly wasn't sure if "Wow" was a compliment or not. Ya know....it's kinda like the word "interesting". To be honest, I didn't like yesterday's card. It was WAY too busy. I guess I made up for it today!
I'm thinking this card doesn't need much instruction. The small, Whisper White square is 1-1/2" x 1-1/2". The Real Red layer is 1-5/8" x 1-5/8". The larger Whisper White layer is 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" with a Real Red layer of 3-5/8" x 4-7/8".
