Today I'm sharing a very simple one layer Christmas card created with non-holiday stamp set. I simply used a leaf stamp from the Remember This stamp set by Altenew to create my background.

season's greetings

I added a sentiment from Pine Tree mini stamp set and some small dots with red marker for the berries. To finish my card I added glossy accents for some shine and dimension. Quick and easy, perfect for last minute card makers! *wink*
