A few years back a card making blog challenged us design team members to create Christmas projects using standard, non-Christmas themed supplies. After some desperate moments, I started taking new perspectives to the stamps I already had in my stash, and soon realized how rewarding it was to discover new and unconventional ways for using them.
This Christmas card is a continuation of that challenge idea: Instead of using a holiday wreath stamp, I draw a circle on craft cardstock, stamped leaves around it using a simple flower leaf stamp, and decorated the card with a hint of liquid red ink and a punched paper bow. The end-result looks yet quite Christmassy, doesn’t it!
I also punched two gift tags and used the same technique on those. So simple and easy to make! The metallic shimmer of the Emerald Green Delicata ink made my card look even more festive; it’s all in the details!
