More Fun With Autumn Days… A Special Christmas Card

This was a really fun card / experiment.  Starting with scraps of card stock and the little Christmas image from the Holiday Best (Hostess Level 1) stamp set… add a few punches, a mat pack and ribbon… This super simple and easy card is great for beginning stampers too!

Background images on this card are both from the Autumn Days Stamp Set and stamped with Versa mark embossing ink to leave a watermark impression on both the Real Red and Garden Green Cardstock.  You can use VersaMark ink on any card stock color to leave a watermark image slightly darker than the original cardstock color!

 

Handmade Christmas cards are so nice to receive in the mail, and fun to make too!  The stitching along the outside edge of the Very Vanilla Cardstock is faux… made with a mat pack and paper piercing tool.  The piercing tool was also used to pierce each scallop of the focal image.
