I ordered the Tags til Christmas stamp set a few weeks ago and put it aside thinking that I wouldn’t use it until December and I was making tags. Wrong! This stamp set makes great cards. And bonus – 8 of the 9 images have coordinating punches available.
I stamped the ornament image in Always Artichoke ink on Whisper White cardstock and added a "Merry Christmas" greeting from the All Holidays stamp set in the same colour. I wrapped a length of Cherry Cobbler seam binding between the two stamped images and adhered the seam binding on the back. Next, I layered Cherry Cobbler and then Always Artichoke cardstock behind the Whisper White piece.
I cut a second piece of the seam binding so it had a very narrow width at the tip , almost like a needle, and threaded it through the holes of the Always Artichoke button from the Deck the Halls Big Designer Button package.
The Crumb Cake cardstock was scored at 1/4", 3/8", 1-3/8", 1-1/2", 3-3/4", 3-7/8", 4-7/8" and 5" before I adhered it to the Always Artichoke card. A 2" x 4" piece of the Deck the Halls designer series paper fits right between the score lines.
