While searching for card samples (something I do often to gain inspiration), I came across this idea. Really simple and yet a wow! The colors are Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke.
I found the card I cased from Taunya Thurman Rivers, a fellow demonstrator. The original poster, Stamping with Ali, made this monochromatic card in all Real Red.

I really liked it, but wanted to use more traditional coloring, and the new 1/2" Seam binding found in the Holiday Mini. The "Merry Christmas" image is from the Come to Bethlehem stamp set.
