For my first Christmas card - I used the small and medium snowflakes from Alpine Christmas. The Santa in his Sleigh and "Believe in the Magic" are from Twas the Night Before Christmas. First I masked the strip where the sentiment is on a Vintage Cream panel. I stamped the snowflakes and Santa with Versamark ink. I removed the mask and clear embossed the stampings. I replaced the mask and sponged the panel with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink. I removed the mask again and stamped the sentiment. Then simply layered the panel to the vintage cream card.
Here's a peak at the inside of my card - another sentiment from Alpine Christmas.
My card design was inspired by these valences from Sturbridge Yankee
The sentiment I stamped inside is from Alpine Christmas (can I say that you will never need another Christmas sentiment set if you get this set along with Seasonal Flourish??!!)
Now let's all go and see the wonderful Christmas cards the rest of the Design Team has to inspire us! Here are their links. I bet you have many of the stamp sets we are using today already in your craft room?
