Real Early Season's Greetings

I know these greetings are not "real early", but the card incorporates the colors Real Red and Early Espresso, and we procrastistampers have to take credit at every opportunity we can, to claim to be "real early"!


This card uses the Punch Pals stamp set. I have WAY too many Christmas/Holiday stamp sets because Stampin' Up! always comes out with such cute ones! I really super try not to buy more than like one a year, because I can only use them for about a month (which for procrastistampers equates to maybe two weeks at the most!). Since I tend to use the most recent holiday sets I've gotten, I wanted to make a point to bring Punch Pals back out again. I love, love, love the snowman and the penguin! Of course, the saying comes from the Curly Cute stamp set, which was new in July...so I didn't go totally "retro" with my card.

And I have to be honest, I probably would have preferred to use Crumb Cake or even Chocolate Chip for the dark layers, but I don't have ribbon in those colors and I was too lazy to dye my white ribbon. Once again, my card design was restricted by my laziness. *sigh*  That's also why I didn't color in the images. This was meant to be a quick and easy card. If you ever get a card from me where I cut images out by hand, and/or color in the open line images, or, dare I go there -- heat emboss -- you'll know two things: 1) I love you dearly, and 2) I truly was "real early" because I got to take my own sweet time making your card! Lol.
