It's time for a Christmas in July theme with the AAA Cards team!  For the next two weeks, we want to see your clean and simple cards (lots of empty space!) that you can make in minutes (after the initial design is done, the card should be quick to reproduce) with the optional theme of Christmas.  I LOVE making Christmas cards so of course I took on both themes!

For this challenge, our sponsor is Time For Tea Designs.  Link up your card on the AAACards website for your chance to win a $15 credit to their store!

My card came together very quickly... definitely a made in minutes card!
I started out cutting the patterned paper strips to 3/4" in width but I decided they were too big... so I trimmed off a 1/4" from each.  I then adhered the large strips to the top left of the card.  I then stamped the sentiment thinking that would be the end of the card.... but I felt like it was missing something.  So I added those 1/4" strips to the bottom right corner, mimicking ribbon on a Christmas present.  I like how it turned out.

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Neenah Solar White 110lb
*Patterned Paper:  Stampin' Up! (retired)
*Images:  Simon Says Stamp Clean Line Christmas


  1. This is such a great design for creating quick last minute Christmas cards - and we all need those!

  2. I thought it was Washi tape at first, equally as fast I'd think, very pretty

  3. I am so going to try this with washi tape!

  4. Such a perfect use of patterned paper on a CAS card!

  5. Such a brilliant idea and beautiful card.
