The 12 Days of a Clean and Simple Christmas-Stamp Simply Style-Day Three

Hello, and welcome to day three of 12 Days of Clean and Simple (CAS) Christmas...Stamp Simply Style! 

I must say it's been fun throwing together quick and easy cards, with nary a thought to as what I'm doing...LOL! Actually, with all of the gorgeous decorator paper and embellishments available, it really doesn't take a lot of thought to putting together a quick card that can thrill the recipient.

Enough of's my design for today:

I began with a simple layout using Cosmo Cricket's "Mitten Weather" 6x6" decorator paper pad (on sale now for only $3.00 a pad!). You can view all of Cosmo Cricket papers here.

This pad has traditional Christmasy colors, as well as lavender tones, with some of the prints usable for all year round...such as this card here.

The highlight of this CAS design has to be the beautiful cream Prima "Wave" trim and Webster's Pages "Assorted Holiday Silhouette" cameo. You can purchase the Silhouettes in single styles or as the assorted pack.

A bit of ivory 1/4" May Arts Silk ribbon, JustRite "Mini Christmas Sentiment" and die from JustRite's "Happy Everything" Kit join in to finish this design.

All supplies used today are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Deb, this is just gorgeous - I LOVE how you've pieced the paper and used the Prima trim -- and the Candy Cane Silhouette -- JUST lovely.

Very, very pretty! I, too, often leave off the sentiment until needed.
