I had a lot of fun creating these four cards.  

My base cards are all a shade of green.  The paper was in my stash, so I am not sure what the correct color is.  I cut four white backgrounds using the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Die.  

Next, I used white paper and sponged Cracked PistachioFossilized AmberPicked Raspberry, and Salty Ocean 
Distress Oxide inks on four different pieces.  I used the Ho Ho Ho Die from My Favorite Things and cut the words out of each color of distressed paper.  

I mixed the colors to create the cards.  This was a super quick way to make four fun cards!.

 I hope these make your smile! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you!
