Sneak Peek - Gift Giving 2
Here is another card using some of the stamps in the Gift Giving Set from Hanna Stamps ... I have combined them with two Darcies stamps I already had on hand as I thought both worked well together. Yesterday my card was one that could be used for all sorts of occasions today I thought I would create a Christmas card with this set.
Last Wednesday when Roxie posted the sketch challenge for the week she also posted a bonus sketch challenge ... which I wouldn't have even known about except that my friend Kim mentioned it to me a few days ago ... the sketch is designed to look like a parcel. When I first saw this sketch I immediately thought of my ribbon border & bow stamps by Darcies Rubber Stamps and I knew I had to make one of these cards soon. Then I received my new Gift Giving set on Thursday and I thought how perfect the tag in the set would be on this card. Here I have decided to use the verse from the set on the tag .... I so love that verse! I can see the tag being a very useful stamp in this set ... I may need to stamp a few to make some quick tags for my Christmas gifts this year. I used the little present that is also included with this set to stamp the background on the old olive base card.
Although this is a Christmas card, by changing the colors it could just as easy be a card for any occasion you wanted.
