Happy International World Card Making Day!
Simple Saturdays are all about clean and simple card making to me. Cards that can be made in 10 minutes or less.
This card was made using the Joyous Celebrations stamp set and Holiday Frame Embossing Folder seen in the Holiday Catalogue on page 7.
After creating the embossed frame, I stamped the dotted frame, ornament and greeting on a piece of Whisper White card stock with Night of Navy ink. I cut the ornament out with scissors and added a rhinestone to the center. The other images were punched out.
Now all that was left to do was assemble the card with a stampin’ dimensional between the ornament and the dotted frame. Quick and easy. If you need to make a lot of Christmas cards this year, think about a card similar to this one.

In looking closer at this card, I think I glued the Whisper White card stock to the Night of Navy card upside down. The frame has enough scrolls going on that it really doesn’t make much difference but the frame is shown the opposite way in the catalogue. Oops!
Using two of the Oval Punches on this card really helped cut down on the time it took to make. The Extra Large Oval (119859) fits perfectly around the stamped frame and the Small Oval (120908) is a perfect fit for the greeting.

To quote Frank Sinatra, "You can’t have one without the other."
Now I don’t think Frank was referring to stamp sets and embossing folders but the sentiment is the surely the same. When Stampin’ Up! designs a stamp set like Joyous Celebrations to match an embossing folder like Holiday Frame, you just have to have both!
