Stampin' Up! now offers individual stamps—ideal for simple cards. This card uses the Dasher stamp with Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla card stock and matted on Soft Suede card stock. A hole punched in the side of the layers is perfect for a little knot of narrow Real Red taffeta ribbon.
To decorate the top of the card, I tore scrap paper to use as a mask before stamping randomly with the filigree stamp from the Elements of Style stamp set. Before removing the mask, sponge with more Real Red ink over the design. The "Merry Christmas" greeting is from A Cardinal Christmas stamp set.

As usual, Stampin' Dimensionals make the focal point (Dasher) pop.
