Christmas Present

I have pretty limited craft budget so I really enjoy getting the most out of my supplies and using them in new ways. For the card I am sharing with you today, I used an all occasion everyday stamp set to create a Christmas card. I was inspired by a Christmas ad that I recently saw and that is where the idea for my card came from.


I stamped several different images from Sweet N Sassy stamps Seeing Spots set in both red and gold inks to make a square. I then matted it and used some organdy ribbon to make it look like a present. The card was further embellished with gold stickles and gold pearls in the corners. I "framed" the sentiment by placing it between 2 score lines. I was fairly happy with how this card came out and I am planning on making more in some different color combos.

stamps- Seeing Spots from SNSS
Cardstock- Gold Sparkle, Blanc Sparkle and red from Paper Temptress
embellishments- gold pearls, gold stickles, gold organdy ribbon, and scor-pal

Tis the season for holiday shopping! This week's birthday special at Sweet N Sassy stamps is Buy a $25 gift certificate and get a $5 gift certificate for yourself. Now that is my kinda shopping- one for you and one for me too so everyone is happy lol.

Well, have a great day and I appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog!

This is SUCH a creative idea! I knew that I should have put that set in my shopping cart last time I ordered!
