Creative Corner Christmas

I participated in Our Creative Corner's challenge yesterday, which was this sketch:

OCC 10-18-08 sketch2

I had been wanting to play with my Crafty Secrets Vintage Christmas set, PLUS I got one of the new 6x6 scrapblock stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms, Aged Sheet Music, so I decided to combine the two:

OCC Ho Ho Ho 10-18-08

I really would have liked to have added a couple more embellishments to this: ribbon, or something; but at midnight, I just couldn't think straight to come up with anything! So this is how it will stay! I added some stamping to the inside as well:

The clear set really stamped a nice clear image; I was quite impressed! And the 6x6 is wonderful because you don't have to worry if your image is not going to cover the whole cardfront. Great products!

  • Paper: VV, Bravo Burgundy, Kraft, Mellow Moss
