Checkered Christmas

September 7, 2018

I saw a card on Pinterest that used the holly image from the Blended Seasons stamp set in a panel across the top of a card and it gave me an idea to try using the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set and the Buffalo Check background stamp.  I stamped the Buffalo Check background onto Whisper White card using Granny Apple Green ink and attached it to scored and folded Basic Black card.  I stamped the holly image from the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set twice onto a strip of Whisper White card, once at the top and once at the bottom.  I coloured the image using the Dark Real Red and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I attached the stamped panel to Basic Black card and attached it to the left hand side of the card front.  I stamped the greeting from the Timeless Tidings stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink I attached the greeting to Basic Black card and then the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the holly image from the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set twice onto the left hand side of Whisper White card, once at the top and once at the bottom.  The images are coloured using the Dark Real Red and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.

This is not what you would call a traditional Christmas card, but I love how bright and cheery it is even though I have used Basic Black card.  I’d love to know what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
