Christmas Flower

As promised, here is another card with the Watecolor Winter stamp set (129724). I used Real Red for the full petals (remember, this is a 2 step stamp), Cherry Cobbler for the outlines, Gumball Green and Soft Suede for the pinecones. If you want to use only one color on your 2 step stamps, stamp off lightly on scrap paper to remove some of the ink from your first stamp, then use the full inking with your second layer. I didn't use the outline layer for the pinecones, just because I liked the way they looked on this card without it. You can guess where/how to position the second layer over the first or use a great tool called a Stamp-a-ma-jig (101049), and no that isn't a word I made up, even though it sounds that way!

I felt like it needed something to frame it, so I have a photo corner punch, which you can create by cutting/punching a square, cutting the square corners off and cutting/punching the square corner from the inside of the piece you cut off. Hope that makes sense. If not, let me know and I will try again.

This card is so simple with only layering of Gumball Green, Real Red, and Whisper White cardstock. I used chocolate chip for the corners. Give it a try. I really think that you will be pleased and the recipient will be amazed!

Have a great day and if you need to order this fun set or any supplies, just go to my SU site by clicking on the "Order Online" button here . And, as always, thanks for stopping by!
