Stampin' Up! French Foliage and I create a easily mass produced Christmas Card!

I know when it comes to making my Christmas cards this year, I'll be looking for something that, a. doesn't use a bunch of cardstock, b. doesn't require too much thought c. something that is easily posted and d. something that I can produce a lot of in a short period of time.... I think I've found my card for this year! You may remember this card I made last month... So, I decided to make one Christmassy
This year, my Christmas colours are back to traditional red and Green, so this card is perfect :) It is a Confetti  White card base, which I have stamped the little leaf from French Foliage in Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive. I stamped the sentiment, which is from Contempo Christmas in Real Red. I added 'berries' using some red stickles. 
I am entering this into the Less is More one layered leaves challenge and the Simply Stampin' Challenge which is Leaves as well
Thanks for popping by!

Thsee do look like lots of fun and easy peasy to mass-produce, yet each one will be a bit different.

A really unusual design. I love traditional Christmas colours and you're right - we need something simple, quick to make, easy (and cheaper) to post and yet stylish.

This is gorgeous!
Thanks so much

What a lovely Christmas card, very creative use of a French Foliage leaf to make a wreath! I think Confetti White CS was the perfect CS choice for your card base and the red sparkly berries are such a nice festive finishing touch!
I really hope you join us again at Simply Stampin'! Ruth x
