Timeless Tuesday...keep it flat


Today at Timeless Tuesday it's Christmas in July and we have to make it a flat card with nothing sticking up...reminds me of my bosom. Marilyn Monroe I'm not. It's always a challenge to make a card and keep it simple but I gave it a whirl. Used a very old stamp ( showed it dated back to 2007-8) but some oldies are goodies and this is one of them. What more can you say but rejoice when it comes to Christmas. Made it very simple by just embossing the phrase with gold on gold and then just colored a bit with my markers. Did a side embossing to give a little fussy to it and after just matting the whole kit and caboodle I'm done here. 
Hope all is well with all of you. Heading to the resort for the weekend to meet up with some of the finest crafty ladies from Flourishes. Wahoo! Looking forward to meeting... well it's a secret but I'll let you know next week how we all met and had a great time. Till then...happy stamping good buddies.
