OK, so I know when I planned my wood-mounted stamp challenge, I earmarked July for using my Christmas stamps. However, it seems I can’t wait for Christmas in July! It’s just Day 6 of the latest Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring challenge and my personal wood stamp challenge and I’ve already inked up a Christmas stamp!
In my defence, when I saw the Stampendous Greetings Window in one of my stamp boxes, I knew it would fit the CAS Christmas challenge so well that I just HAD to use it! The theme of the challenge this month is ‘gifts’ and I thought this stamp would be perfect for that!
I decided to use a sketch from a new-to-me challenge, TGIF Challenges, so my first step was to choose some patterned paper. I had my doubts about using a gift-themed paper as I was a bit concerned that it would be too matchy-matchy… but I think it works OK in the end. After embossing the image, I coloured it using my Twinkling H2O paints and then adhered it to my base card using sticky fixers. Et voila! Super quick and easy Christmas card done! Must remember this design when I create cards for the Caring Hearts drive later this year.
Thanks for stopping by!
