Today I have a card I made for Serendipity's latest Challenge to make a simple Christmas card. I don't usually do things the simple way, but I thought I would give it a try. Here's what I came up with.
Note: Sorry, the picture isn't very good and it definitely doesn't do it justice. The mats and image are actually a beautiful rich olive green.
I used the "Holidy Bundle" stamp from Serendipity and simply embossed it with a dark green embossing powder called "Old Fashioned Olive" from Stampin Up on Very Vanilla paper (SU). I colored the berries and border with an English Red Le Plume marker. Matted it with dark green paper to match the powder called Capers from Bazzills. Then I just embossed the card front with Petals a Plenty embossing folder from Stampin Up. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU) which I colored with Always Artichoke marker (SU), punched with word window punch, then added the modern label punched in Capers paper. I added 2 adhesive pearls and a bow. That's it! It's actually very quick to make. You could color the bundle itself to make it red and green plaid if you wanted to spend a little more time on it.
