My First Christmas Card of the Year


I have decided that I will just stamp for fun this week, and worry about planning the next Stamp Club meeting stuff until later. I got some new Christmas stuff recently and I haven't really played with it yet. I wanted to try this set with colorful eyelets as tree ornaments, and I think it turned out well. Then I got to playing with the punches and I had seen on some one's card that the small snowflake from this set goes well with the Boho Blossom punch 6 petal flower! Then, lo and behold, it layers great with the Snow Blossom punch! I got that punch for Christmas from the hubby a couple years ago and am just now using it for something for myself. And I splurged and used a rhinestone brad in the center of the snow blossom (Stop the hoarding now!) Stamped the KK snow blossom with the Swirled tree, inked edges of the punches with markes in as close a color as I could.
Stamps: Snow Swirled, To You and Yours
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Holiday Treasures DP (all SU)
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, markers (Chocolate Chip, Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive)
Accessories: eyelets, CAD, several punches (Boho Blossoms, Snow Blossom, 1" circle, Small and Large Ovals)
I even stamped on the inside. I think it is a great finishing touch without a lot of effort.
