A little Christmas Stamping with the 411!!

A little Christmas with the Stamping 411!  When I saw this weeks sketch I knew I had to play along... This is such a fun sketch and you could really make a lot of cards in a short amount of time using this one.

I started with the DSP from a retired pack called Desk the Halls... and then I paired it up with the stamp set Bells and Boughs. My card base is Early Espresso with a later of Always Artichoke and some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding. Then I layered my DSP onto a piece of Early Espress before I slipped it under the seam binding.

For my sentiment I stamped off the Holly image in Always Artichoke onto a piece of Very Vanilla and then I stamped the Merry Christmas in Early Espresso and punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch. I punched a second one from some Cherry Cobbler and cut it in half and added it to the Vanilla one to give it an outline. Then I sponged the edges with some Sahara Sand ink.

When I cut the DSP to the size I wanted it there was just a timy bit of the flowers and the holly showing at the top.. I wanted to have some of that at the bottom as well so I cut some from the DSP and added it along the edge to tie it all together. I think this might be one of the Christmas cards I mass produce this year.

I hope you are having a great Tuesday!! Thanks for stopping by...
