We made these Christmas cards at one of my last Stamp-a-Stacks. I always like to show a few cards using non-Christmassy sets, in this case an Alphabet. This is one of my favourite alphabets, Jumbo Outline. It's normally $77.95, but has just been announced on the Inventory Clearance List for $38.98!! If you've been buying lots of pressies for everyone else, why not treat yourself to a bargain stamp set for Christmas. There are lots of other fantastic bargains on the list too!
This alphabet is perfect for stamping on plain or patterned paper and cutting out (like this), stamping and then watercolouring, or you can combine the two - stamp on Patterned Paper like I've done and then lightly watercolour with a Blender Pen in the same colour as the paper, just to make the letters stand out a bit more.
I'll be back soon to show you Amy and Jacob's Christmas cards for their friends!
