More Christmas cards.................

........using a different 'peg' stamp set - shame on me, I've had it for years and never inked it up before this weekend:

Still in 'batch mode' here I made a couple in each set of colours. As previously, I ran an embossing tool round the edge of a die on the reverse of the front of the card to have a better chance of something resembling a circular wreath! This stamp set can be used for birthday cards too as it's made up of little parcels and bows.

I used:

- 4.5" x 4.5" white square card stock

- Tapestry stamp set 'Boxes and Bows' - and a selection of Brilliance Inks

- an Anita's sentiment stamp

- little red pearls and clear gems from stash

Another four all done and dusted....I think there might be a little chink of light at the end of the tunnel - whoopee :)

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Looked just like a wreath and then on closer inspection it's little parcels - how cute! Thanks for sharing.

Hey Di,
Love the red one. I went out to Hobby Lobby and Michaels yesterday. 40% off stamps!!! I bought a few of the Tim Holtz stamps as I didn't have any of those. I bet you could hear the cash register ringing all the way in the UK! ;-)

I am amazed that you post the list of supplies used. I need to be better about keeping track of things.
