Hello stampers! Lisa here today with one more Design It Monday post featuring the Oh Christmas stamp set.
I’ve often been asked if I choose the stamps or the papers first when creating my cards. Kind of like the chicken and the egg question…which came first! In this case it was this particular sentiment from the Oh Christmas stamp set. I knew I wanted it to be the focal point, so I kept the other elements simple. I stamped the image on a ledger paper then die cut it along with some red glitter paper to back it with.
I chose a traditional plaid paper then adhered it to the white card base followed with the sentiment label. To dress it up just a tad, I added some fussy cut pine sprigs and die cut mittens stamped with that same pine. I also used a hole punch on some of the red glitter paper scraps for glittery dot accents.
My matching tag was die cut with the same label using the ledger and glitter papers. This sentiment comes from the Sketchy Christmas stamp set. More stamped pine accents were used here.
So just which did come first, the chicken or the egg!!
