Hello Friends,
It's Diane with you today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.
After making  more involved cards lately, I decided to share with
you an easy card today.....easy, but it still "packs a punch" so to speak".

I started out with a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" white card stock.
Sponging TH Distress Inks Spun Sugar on first, then Evergreen Bough next.
Using a black ink I stamped an image from Flourishes Country Time Christmas
on top of the sponged ink.  I like how it gives a soft, muted look to the card front.
I went over various parts of the trees with a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen, giving a bit of
shimmer to all the trees...
I used 1/2" Scor-tape to mount the card front to a black piece of card stock,
and 1/2" Scor-tape once again to mount the piece to the front of my card....
To add a bit of texture, I cut my deer from cork,
 using a die from Memory Box called Deer Trio, only using the Doe and Fawn.
I used a gelly roll  pen to make a few spots on the fawn.
To finish the card I added a bit of twine, tied on a bead
and had a fast and pretty holiday card.
I wanted to mention the Flourishes Country Time Christmas set has several
beautiful Christmas sentiments included with it, which will help making your Christmas
cards fast and easy.
Thank you for visiting and hope to "see you" back here soon!!

This is one of those images that looks great colored or not. Your sponging is just the right effect for a fabulous card!

VERY creative girlfriend and I love how you used the twine. I don't have much twine but what I do have I never think to use! Thanks for inspiration (again!).
