Season's Greetings

It's Amber here today and I am so excited to kick off Christmas Cards week here at SP and Company! I do realize today is still September, but tomorrow is October and that is the official start of the holiday season right?! : )

I really liked the woodgrain effect I got from my last card that I had to make more using the Vintage October: Wooden it Be Nice set. I was hoping this panel would emulate a front door:

To make the wreath I used Poppy Field Summer. Yep, you read that right! I used the stamp shown below and only inked up the leafy portion in green as you can see below (never mind the stained flowers - there is not really ink on them).
I just repeatedly stamped that section in green while I slowly rotated my cardstock panel until I had a circle. I added some red glittter glue and ribbon and called it a wreath!

For the sentiment I used Ultimate Sentiments II and Mix n Match Sentiments Basics to create the banner.

I now have my first Christmas card of the year! I can almost smell the evergreen and hear the carols...

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you can make some cards this week and share them with us over in the gallery or on our facebook page. I'd love to see what you make!

  1. A very clever idea to use your stamp sets in a creative way.
