Designer Notes:

Do you make a bunch of Christmas cards every year? Me too! We want it to be quick and easy, right? Red, white and Kraft is a safe color combination that works for any age. A cute stamp like “Santa Stops” works for both genders. I stamp it on some scrap and die cut it out with a label die. I just hand cut the red label - it does not need to be perfect - no one will notice it but the extra layer adds a lot more detail to the outline and makes the stamped image pop. Tickled? It is never too early to start making Christmas cards :) Happy Crafting!
