One of my favourite stamps


This is another of the cards I made for Making Cards magazine using one of my favourite Christmas stamps from Stampendous. I stamped the image twice and cut one into an oval and decoupaged it, coloured the holly with Copics and added lots of shabby white frantage. The papers are Craftwork Cards Christmas Post. Lots of distressing on this card with DI Vintage photo and TH tool. The holly leaves were made with a Woodware punch and sanded Core'dinations with added pearls for berries.
