Quick Card & Quick Post

Several of you have asked me to share my plan for lessening stress around mailing Christmas cards next year.  I will do that soon.  I'm happy to say the last batch for this year is ready to go to the post office today. All I have left are the ones to hand deliver to the Vet & Groomer.  I always take them some goodies & a card, so next task is to make the goodies!  
Today I'm sharing a card for the very appropriate Impression Obsession Challenge, Quick Christmas Cards.  This actually turned out to be one of my favorite cards.  Clearly I am attracted to a look I call fresh & clean.  The dry embossing is a Taylored Expressions folder, the printed paper is Lawn Fawn (just got that pad & had to use it!), the tree is IO DIE084-V & the sentiment is IO B3585.  I did stack the tree 3 high & let the white layers show slightly.
Clear Wink of Stella gives the tree a beautiful shimmer.  I'm also entering SSS National Christmas Card DayChristmas Card ChallengesCCCB & HLS Anything Goes with Dies. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  16. Love it! I'm not sure what I like better--that it is clean and simple or that the pine tree is plaid. It might be a toss up.
