Holly, Jolly Christmas

I love this Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set.  The images are tiny and a bit challenging for a card, but I've enjoyed playing with them.

I think they are well suited to these 3 1/4" x 6 1/4" cards and it couldn't be easier.  I inked the image with markers and stamped on a scrap of Whisper White 3 times, punched them out with my 1 1/4" Square punch, punched 3 scallop squares from scraps of Garden Green, adhered the images and stamped the sentiment. Rounded corners mimic the scallops.

There are 24 images that can be mixed or matched.  Quick, easy and uses scraps... What fun!

I think I'll enter this in the SU Only challenge this week to make a card using our favorite Christmas colors.

This is so simple, and SO festive! I love the details you give to each this case, rounding the corners to match the scallops.

WOW! Such a clean and fresh looking card. Love the scallops peeking out from behind the squares to make the images pop. It's hard to see, but I think you may have even added a bit of white to the berries for shading. Thanks for joining in at SUO Challenges!
