STAMPING ON KRAFT CARDSTOCK



I'm not quite ready to show anything for Christmas because I have not gotten a good start yet.  This is a layout I tried a while back.  I started by stamping the pretty design with a Penny Black "Trailing Beauty" stamp onto Kraft card stock.  I didn't get the "look" I was wanting so I decided to trim it down to slightly smaller than the white card base and split the design up in order to be able to brighten the look.  Using a white gel pen I added some detail to the flowers.  I really like the stamp, but the next time I will definitely be stamping it onto either white or off white card stock.

I hope that by next week I will be able to have something made for Christmas cards.  This year I will be making more multiples of a single design though because I find myself operating behind schedule.  Thank you for stopping by today.
