Brushed Christmas Joy

I had some fun with small stamps and a stamp positioner to create this simple card. Darkroom Door has two ‘Brushed Christmas’ sets containing stamps with the brushed look you see in these images. There are big trees and little trees, bit and little stars and baubles as well. It was easy enough to stamp one image, slide my cardstock along and stamp the next and so on to reach across the panel. I centred the trees by starting with the middle tree but I wasn’t quite so particular with the stars or baubles.

The ribbon across the panel is velvet and the laser cut letters are left over from a mixed media class I did a while back. I think it’s cute that the ‘o’ on the velvet looks like a buckle on Santa’s belt (totally unplanned ofcourse)

    It’s a very different for you. That makes it fun to see. Creative use of stamps. I like the velvet ribbon and unintentional Santa belt. 😊

    This is a really fresh and pretty card Heather and love the brushed finish to them, and the large sentiment letters contrast beautifully with the fishtail velvet ribbon strip behind them. x
