CAS Christmas

A couple of weeks ago I had some of my TOPS friends over to stamp. Most of these ladies have never stamped before. I give them little goodies every now and then and they had expressed an interest in stamping. Of course, I am always up for stamping with friends!! So I prepared 4 EASY Christmas cards for them to make. Easy stamping is my absolute favorite kind of stamping. I'd much rather crank out several easy cards than spend my entire afternoon on one detailed card. But, I do like for even my easy cards to have some kind of WOW factor.
Here is the first card we made... a traditional red and green card

The only stamping was the scalloped square image from "Punches Three".
I gave them the option of the paper pierced circle as that is really not a beginner technique, but they all chose to add it and they did a pretty good job too.
I'll be showing you all 4 of the Christmas cards we made over the next week or 2. I have to spread them out so I have something to show you!
Have a blessed day!

I love that you paper pierced around the scallop, I think that makes the WOW on your card. Very pretty!
