Simple Noel

I played most of the day yesterday with my new toy, but I am still not ready to show my creations yet. I did get 5 layouts done.
I wanted to share a card I made awhile back with you today. It has a simple layout that can easily be adjusted for any stamp set. It is also a great one to show off all that new Designer Paper you ordered this month.
I really like this "Big on Christmas" stamp set. The three stamps have the perfect combination of image and sentiment. I chose the "Noel" stamp for this card. I took most of the colors I used from the Dashing DSP strip. The main card base is Real Red, as is the ornament. The letters and mat behind the DSP are Old Olive. I colored the top of the ornament with my gold ZIG painty pen. There is also a silver tip for those who prefer. I also colored the stripes on the ornament with the gold painty pen. To bring in the gold a little more, I matted the main image panel with brushed gold cardstock and tied a piece of gold elastic cord around the DSP strip.
Any larger image would work will in this layout. The card can also be turned on it's short end to accommodate a tall image like "Frosty". Change out the DSP for an entirely different color scheme.
