Happy Thursday, all! Can you handle another Christmas card? The Stamp Ink Paper challenge is Christmas in July, so I combined it with the Freshly Made Sketches sketch from Jen M:
This is the first time I've pulled out This Christmas Specialty DSP....aren't these patterns pretty?
I received the Christmas set Jolly Christmas at the very end of the holiday catalog period last year, so this is the first time I've inked it up! I used Rose Red to stamp the sentiment, then Mint Macaron to do some snowflakes. I used an Impression Obsession die (Pine Boughs) to diecut some greenery in MM and Garden Green, then added a bow from the Mini Treat Bag thinlet:
And here's a little trick to get added value from your Layering Squares dies....if you look very closely, you can see where I actually adhered two pieces together (cut a straight edge across one of your squares), lining up the scallops to fit my stamped piece. I love doing this....it's barely discernible and it's like getting a free set of rectangle dies! Finally, the inside is stamped with sentiments and images from the Paper Pumpkin Christmas set from last year:
Thanks for popping in today!
Have a blessed day!
