Nature Sings - Bring Beauty and Ease to your Christmas Card Designs

Hello and Happy Thursday!  I hope you enjoyed the blog hop with the Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder Framelits? I know I did; so many talented demonstrators, 40 to be exact, took part in this awesome hop. if you haven't checked it out yet, please do, I promise you won't be disappointed.
Today, I want to share a really quick and easy card this is also eye catching and will be loved by anyone that receives it, especially those that love nature and the beautiful animals that roam, such as in this case, the Elk. I LOVE this stamp set. Yeah, I'm a country girl at heart and I love critters....well most critters...I don't do well with mice or rats...they would be my all out phobia...eeek, I get the Hebe jeebees just thinking about them! Anyway, as I was saying, I love this stamp set and want to share a card I made using it. I was inspired by a card designed by Ronda Wade and her Rubber Queens. I changed up the stamp set and I used some retired ribbon that I had on hand, but I really love this card and am very happy with how it came out.

Instructions:

Supplies:

Nature Sings Stamp Set
Whisper White 8.5" x 5.5" and 4" x 5.25"; scrap piece to stamp and punch
Scrap Real Red Card stock to punch with 1.75" Circle Punch
Be Merry DSP cut 4" x 2.5"
Soft Suede Ink 
Basic Black Archival Ink
Real Red Ribbon
Pretty Label Punch
1.75" Circle Punch
Stampin' Dimensionals
Fast Fuse

Directions:

Adhere the DSP to the Whisper White panel with Fast Fuse. Wrap with the ribbon around the seam. Using the small Elk image and Soft Suede ink, stamp off onto scrap paper then stamp the image onto Whisper White. Then with the Archival Basic Black ink, stamp the sentiment directly over the Elk image and punch using the Pretty Label punch. Adhere to the front of the Real Red 1.75" circle and adhere to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. Finally, adhere the card front to the card base using Dimensionals. 

I hope you enjoyed this card and helps you get thinking about your Christmas cards. If you get started now, you will be ready to send them when the time comes and won't be stressed trying to make them and send them all at the same time while trying to get ready for the holiday's. Let's make it our mission to have a stress free holiday season and enjoy Christmas with the ones we love this year. 
Happy Stamping,
Katrina
