The Merriest Merry Christmas

Happy Friday!
Or should I say Happy Black Friday Shopping! Did y'all study all the ads, get out your walking shoes and set the alarm for too early o'clock?? Yeah, me neither! Well maybe I'll do a bit of shopping but I'm not getting up at the crack of dawn. 

So now that the Thanksgiving feast is down to leftovers, that means the Christmas season has officially begun! Some of my neighbors already have their lights up, ready to turn on.  I don't know why I can't seem to get with the program. I expect a knock any time, asking me that very question, lol. Are y'all ready for some new Christmas images? I'm showing off a couple of the new releases. Isn't that one fine lamp post? I love it! And the greeting is actually a two part-er. The rest says "and the happiest Happy New Year" so I put that part on the inside since I could only fit this much on my little die cut label.

For the rest of my clean and simple card, I die cut a couple of flourished holly out of the green then used the negative, or leftover part for my background. The large white frame was also a leftover from cutting a larger label shape out for another card. In order to just stamp the part of the sentiment I wanted, I used markers to scribble onto the image then stamped them. The lamp post was colored w/ copics and cut out. I just love the traditional Christmas colors and festive look of the sentiment and lamp post. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend and please check back tomorrow for the DRS Designs New Releases!
Supplies:
stamps: DRS Designs - New Releases coming tomorrow!
paper: white, green
ink: Memento tuxedo black
accessories: Copic markers, Holly Flourish die (Cheery Lynn), Spellbinders labels 18 dies, Tombow markers (to stamp the sentiment)

Great card. Love that you used green for the lamp post.

I was always told in school that 2 negatives make a positive - I guess it's true, this is positively wonderful!
