12 Cards of Christmas - Card 3

My absolute favourite Christmas stamp set of all time! Yes, it's a big claim, but I absolutely love it. You'll be seeing a few Chrissy cards made using this set. The thing I love most about it is that all the cards look so different. I really think you could use this set year after year, and no one would be thinking "not that one again".
I've used the 2 gorgeous In colours Soft Sky and Blue Bayou on this one. I stamped the swirl, snowflake and small flower in Whisper White ink on the Blue Bayou panel, and tied a piece of Soft Sky ribbon around it. The main image has been stamped in Blue Bayou on Whisper White cardstock, and then I sponged the edges in Soft Sky. I stamped the snowflake again in Soft Sky, punched it out with the 3/4" circle, and blinged it up with glitter and my 2 way glue pen, and then popped it up on a Dimensional. It's a small touch that makes a big difference. The other thing I have done is mount the main image on both colours side by side, instead of just using one. It's a good trick to use when you are only working with 2 colours.

Stamps: Season of Joy
Ink: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Whisper White
Cardstock: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Whisper White
Other: sponge dauber, Soft Sky double-stitched ribbon, 3/4" circle punch, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Dimensionals
