Christmas Cardinal Card This Quick and Easy Christmas Card will only take a few minutes to reproduce.  This sample has a retired Designer Series Paper, but choose whichever current paper you want and match the colors accordingly.

Start with Whisper White card stock (100730) for the card base (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″).  Layer a 2 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ piece of coordinating card stock to the left side of the card base.  Add the Designer Series Paper of choice (2″ X 5″) on top of the card stock.  Stamp an image in coordinating classic ink and punch out.  Layer the stamped image onto a piece of card stock that has been cut with a framelit (I used the Labels Collection framelits 125598.)  Add a little bling like the Basic Rhinestone Jewels (119246) and mount on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).

In the 2013 Holiday catalog there are these two Designer Series Paper Pack that are sized just for cards.  Because the paper is double-sided you get four different designs in each pack.
