First, I wrapped my card base with an “Antique Gold” Organza from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Once that was done, I stamped the flourishes and sentiment using the Hampton Art SC0274 Holiday Dreams and Wishes Clear Stamp Set with “Potters Clay” Dye Ink from Memento. One pass through my manual die cutting maching with a nice cream cardstock and Cheery Lynn’s DL175 Laced Pine Snowflake gave me this gorgeous snowflake, which I adhered by simply poking a beautiful coordinating brad through the center.
**CRAFTER’S NOTE** A great thing about clear acrylic stamps – with some careful straightening or curving, you can easily alter the shape of a sentiment stamp. This one was already curved. But I “jimmied” it a little to get it to nicely echo the curves of my flourish.
In just a few steps, this card was DONE! Y’all know how I feel about keeping it simple this Christmas!
