Holiday Mini Bailout #3: O Christmas Tree

Newsflash! Christmas is but a fortnight away. I'm calm, I'm cool, I'm collected, I'm also in denial! How about you? All hunky-dory in your neck o' the woods? If so, please keep it to yourself. ;-) For the rest of you us, I have a little rescue remedy.

I call it my Holiday Mini Bailout.  Untwist your seasonal skivvies 'cause each day until the 19th I will post a simple 4"x3.5"card to help you with some last-minute projects. These are easy cards that I made in a snap when I discovered my cupboard was bare.  They can also be adapted into gift tags - yay, a Christmas bargain! No time for fancy foot-work right now, so these are super simple projects, in most cases requiring only some scrap paper, stamp and long-lost bits from under the craft table. Let's do Christmas without Botox, shall we?

Here is Holiday Mini Bailout #3 - O Christmas Tree:

The background paper is from...well, who knows! I found it loose at the bottom of some random pieces of hoarded papers.  The tree is from HOTP's "Enchanted Christmas" set, stamped with Memento Bamboo Leaves. I cut it out with Spellbinders Labels 4 and inked it with TH's Antique Linen. To finish, a little bow with Doodlebug's Christmas Bakers Twine. 

On the inside I stamped the greeting from Chocolate Baroque's "Warm Christmas  Greetings" with Memento Rhubarb Stalk.  And we're done!

I'm sharing this card with 2013 Christmas Card Challenge #2 "Die Cuts"; Robin's Fetish #137 "Christmas Cards" and Dream Valley Challenges #47 "Christmas".

How easy is that! It's shamelessly simple, meaning you could churn out half a dozen of these in no time... I should know! Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with Card stay tuned!
