Yuletide Joy – SOTM

It’s only October, but the stores are starting to fill with Christmas decorations (honestly that drives me nuts!).  But, here I am with a Christmas stamp set.  I had fun pairing this month’s Stamp of the Month with the Swan Lake paper which has more of a fall theme by using some of the patterned rather than themed papers.  I really love this Peacock color!

For this card I use some gold embossing powder (I really need to work on my embossing techniques – but that day I was running out of time and had to go with what I had.  Looks like I need to try a dryer sheet to keep away the excess powder.).  I did this as a half fold card – I cut a piece of White Daisy card stock to 4 1/4 X 8 1/4.  Then I scored this at 5 1/2″ so the inside & outside come together.

Usually I’ve seen these cards horizontally, but I wanted to put a square peg in a round hole, so I ended up putting it vertically.

One of the things I like about this stamp set is that each of the images has a smaller image within the swirls – holly leaves within the bell, a poinsettia in the star, candy in the stocking and stars in the present. You can also use the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for two of the images.
