Hello and welcome~ In today’s post, I want to share with you a holiday card that uses a brand new stamp from the ‘Holiday Sentiments’ set from Inspired By Stamping…
This card began with the tag, stamped with a sentiment from ‘Holiday Sentiments’ and a little holly and berry embellishment found in the ‘Holiday Tags’ stamp set. Visual interest was added to the lower background paper by randomly off-stamping sentiments from ‘Holiday Tags’. Off stamping means you ink your stamp as usual and then quickly stamp it onto scrap paper, followed immediately by a second stamping onto your card. It creates a readable image that is light enough not to compete with the focal point…in this case, the tag.
Across the top, a band of crocheted cotton trim is topped with a punched circle that is embellished with candy canes that are also found in the ‘Holiday Tags’ set. After fussy cutting and adhering them to the circle, they were treated to a glossy layer as a nice contrast of surface finishes. The combinations that you will dream up with these stamp sets is nearly endless! Have some fun by tweaking holiday colors (I really like this one!) and letting the sentiment be the star of the show!
