Here is the Christmas card I made with Theresa's set Joyful Holiday for the Show Me the Stamps Holiday Kickoff. What a fun elegant set to create with. I used the poinsettia and branch with berries stamps to make the background on my tan card base and the tan main panel by stamping around the stamped sentiment from the same set. I added a few gold pearls to the centers of the flowers on the main panel and some red satin ribbon and a green button threaded with linen thread. These cards would be easy enough to create one for each person on your Christmas card list this year.
PRIZE #2 Theresa will personally be sending out a Vogue Vases 2 Clear Stamp Set to someone who comments on our blogs as well. Here is the complete list of Theresa’s designers...
