SSS Flickr Challenge #5

Today's card is to use a non-Christmas stamp to create a Christmas theme card Craft Stamper challenge and I am going on Clean and Graphic.  I am using the stamp set from SSS Scribble Flowers to create a wreath.  Basically, there are two layers of stamping involved: the base stamping is stamped with white ink on a kraft and the second layer is stamped on the white in different colours.  I did not the stamped the coloured ink exactly on the white but just a little bit off.

The sentiment is from HA Greatest Gifts whereby the "Christmas" is stamped onto the kraft and the "Blessings" is stamped on a vellum.  Both sentiments are heat embossed in white and the vellum adhered onto a coloured cardstock.

I am popping this card into the following challenges : SSS Flickr Challenge, Hero Arts Holiday ChallengeThe Card Concept and Inspirational Journal.



Thanks for dropping by.
