Mono Love and Cheer

Are you done with your Christmas cards? It's not too late! Especially if you decide on a quick and easy card like this one. Super easy! The card base is 6 x 3 with a rectangle of coordinating DSP on top. In this case, it is all Riding Hood Red. I used my Big Shot to punch out the Peace&Love&Cheer border and then cut it apart between words to use only the Love and Cheer part of it. I cut it out in Riding hood and white so I could layer them. I added some silver mini brads to the bottom corners and jazzed them up a bit with my 2-way glue pen and some dazzling diamonds glitter. The ribbon is Celery. The only tricky part on this card is getting it glued down. It is a bit too thin for the snail so I had to use tom bow or 2 way glue. I don't normally use 2way for cards because it just doesn't hold well. But since this was so fine, I figured it could work. It is still holding so, it must have!
