Still working on Christmas cards and following Kristina Werner and her Holiday Card Series.  Her card from day 14 is a great, simple design.  So simple, in fact, that I got carried away cutting out squares and ended up making  five of them in no time.

I just picked up bits of patterned paper from my scrap pile and started cutting squares.  Here are the dimensions you’ll need:

The card is 4 1/4″ square.

You’ll need 8 – 1 1/8″ pieces of patterned paper for the background, a 2 1/2″ square of dark paper for a  mat and a 2 1/4″ square of light paper to stamp on.

I lightly penciled in a line 1/4″ in from all four edges to help place the squares evenly.

Ink: Aged Mahogany Tim Holtz Distress Ink , Weathered Wood Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Papers: Seasonal Paper Stash Paper Pad (Tim Holtz),  Yuletide 12X12 Specialty Paper Pad (K & Company)
