Happy Holidays

When it comes to crafting, I don't care so much about time.  I could be scrapping some really old photos one day and move on to a recent vacation the next day.  I do not scrapbook my pictures chronologically, and the same goes with my cardmaking.

So yesterday I shared a Halloween card, I am totally skipping Thanksgiving and jumping onto Christmas cards.  In fact, I try to make Christmas cards throughout the year because I'd like to beat the holiday stress!

This Christmas card/holiday card is super clean and simple:

Yet I love it!  It is one of those that's great for mass production!  I simply stamped the background stamp on the card base, then stamped the tag twice - one on red cardstock and one on white card stock.  I die cut the tag from the red cardstock, then fussy cut along the inner tag on the white card stock.  I stamped the sentiment and the penguin and colored it and stuck it onto the red tag with foam dots.  Before I put the red tag onto the card, I added some red trimmings.  Yay!  Quick and easy!  What took me the longest time was to dig up the red cardstock.  I tried a couple of shades but none made me happy until I found this one.  LOL.

My card is linking up to the following:
