I love love love making Christmas cards, so I couldn't not participate in the SPCC Christmas Color Combo. Here was the challenge:
I remember seeing this scrapbook image from a couple years ago with gifts along the bottom, and I thought that was perfect for this card. Here's what I did:
Ok, so I did actually stamp on this card, but admittedly not much. I used Real Red, Old Olive and Handsome Hunter on this card. I cut out the dots using my Big Shot and the Big Bold Cupcakes die. I used a few buttons from the Playground Designer buttons, hemp twine, ribbons from the newest mini catalog, and 1/4 white grosgrain ribbon. The image was from an old stamping set that I had. I was all ready to put a nice 'Merry Christmas' sentiment above the ribbon, but then I remembered that I had a 'do not open til Christmas' stamp, and I thought that woudl be perfect. This was a super simple card to do, but looks so fun!!
Welcome to my site!!
I recently moved to Arizona a couple months ago, and am very happily settling into a new career. I was introduced to stamping over 10 years ago. I've always been into crafts, and picked back up with stamping a couple years ago. I love that I finally have the time to dedicate to my crafts, and that I'm able to share my ideas with everyone. I've seen myself grow in my creativity over the past couple years, and to those who say that they are not creative - don't believe it. Anyone can do this, and creativity doesn't happen overnight, it evolves as you learn more and more about the art of stamping. My husband is incredibly supportive as I put more time into my stamp designs and my scrapbooking.
