The Best Way To

Good evening beautiful friends.
I'm here to share another fun Christmas card. It seems I've been into the Christmas spirit of late. I don't always get to get my cards out due to life having a way of dropping surprises. Today's card was made using Mama Elephant Alpine Carolers stamp set. I want to try my own hand at making background paper with stamps. I would say it wasn't so bad. I just enjoyed the free flow of stamping till my heart was content. You know that is one of the reasons I became a card maker. I stamped the background using Studio Calico Color Theory ink Well Red and Going Green.  I would say this turned out great. I did a little masking on the sentiment. I didn't want to cover the stockings on top. I like that the sentiment is peeking under the image. I cut both panels using dies from My Favorite Things blueprints number twentyone. Lately, I've been loving using them. I can honestly say these dies haven't gotten any love since I've picked them up. I'm really trying to use my stash. Lol stay turn because you be seeing more of these dies and stamp.

Happy Crafting AJ.

What a stylish festive card AJ! What a great way to create a background and lovey to use traditional colours in a very contemporary design.
