Itty Bitty Christmas Package – Very Merry

A very simple little card for you today.

I chose to work with the Inspired By Challenge (#198) for the sketch and the suggested photo inspiration and was influenced by the Less Is More Challenge (#457) for the clean and simple syle, theme and additional color.

So many of the current challenges are using a similar theme and color palette, so I have decided to include them as well.  Time Out (#202), Retro Rubber (#173), and Color Hues (#31).

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Cherry Cobbler cardstock.
  • Accent Panel: (3⅞” x 5⅛”) Linen Specialty Paper.
  • Background Panel: (3½” x 4¾”) Kraft Paper.  The sentiment, Very Merry, from the retired Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set (Circa 2019) was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink.
  • Focal Image – Gift Package: (1¾” x 1½”) Shaded Spruce, Cherry Cobbler and Gold plaid patterned paper from the retired Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.
  • Bow Trim:  Using a bit of the Simply Elegant Trim in Gold, I created a small bow and added it to the top of the package.

A super quick and easy Holiday card in such cozy Christmas colors.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!

    1. Hi Maria, Thank you! Yes, the Linen Paper is actually fabric. It comes on a 12 x 12 sheet of backing paper. The fabric has adhesive on the back side for easy placement. The adhesive surprised me. However, I do like the look.


  5. Hi Jolanda! I love a CAS card and this is the very essence of one! I love the papers and how you added depth to a such a clean card with the layers and then did that sweet present and sentiment! Beautiful!


  6. Wow, this is so cute, I can’t believe how well you nailed ALL those challenges with such a sweet little CAS card! Clever and fun! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Retro Rubber challenge this week!
