Simple DIY Christmas Card

This simple DIY Christmas card could easily be dressed up with some embellishments, but I like the clean look as it's shown:

For this card you can use the Cherry Cobbler ink pad to stamp the “at” and “Christmas”.  To color the holly berries first stamp the whole thing in Emerald Envy ink and then color over the green with a Cherry Cobbler marker.  I found the fine tip gave the most control to keep the cherries round and small.

“Why do you add the quarter sheet on top of the card?”  I hear this a lot.  Two reasons come to mind.  First this way you can add dimensionals under the quarter sheet to draw attention to the front layer of the card.  Second, if you happen to mis-stamp (and we all can do that) then you only have to toss a quarter sheet into the scrap pile instead of a half sheet.
