Super Quick & Easy Christmas Card - Joys of the Season Cartridge

I soooo need to be working on Christmas cards!  I know November will be here before I know it, and I won't have enough cards.  Last year I did so much better.  Over on Splitcoast Stampers there is a challenge thread to make 10 Holiday cards a month.  I participated in that challenge last year; so by November I had about 70 Christmas cards, skipping a month or using a month to make other Holiday cards.  BUT this year!!  Oh my, I don't even want to think about it!

Anyway, so I decided to play around with some retired SU cardstock that I need to use up.  This is what I came up with.  Super easy and quick!  I hope you like it!

Card Base: SU Marigold Morning 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  SU True Thyme 3 7/8" X 5 1/8"
Other Cardstock / Paper:  Cranberry Crisp, Silver Paper I bought last year at Target in the Christmas department
Ink: SU Cranberry Crisp
Stamps: PTI (Papertrey Ink) Signature Christmas
Accessories: Silver Ribbon, Fancy Pants All-Fall Gingham Ribbon, SU oval punches, Cricut, Joys of the Season Cartridge (cut at 4"), Cuttlebug & Snow Dots Embossing Folder
