Merry Christmas (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with a very quick and easy Christmas card using the beautiful new clear stamps, Fancy Flourishes


We always have so many cards to make for Christmas, so its nice to be able to get stamping and have a bit of a 'production line going with some simple but effective designs. The new Fancy Flourishes are fab for creating borders, backgrounds and frames so I thought they would be just the job for a a pretty Christmas design. I stamped the flourishes in Ladybug Memento Ink to create the frame, its so easy to line the clear stamps up. I added the sentiment from Bold Christmas Words and matted on some red card. To finish off I added a little red bow

Thanks for visiting today

  2. I always like the crispness of red & white/cream & this demonstrated it beautifully. I especially like the way you have echoed the little stamped ribbon in the sentiment with your lovely actual ribbon bow. A lovely addition of textural embellishment.

  4. This is a beautifully stylish and uncluttered design but makes a really effective Christmas card. This Fancy Flourishes set is so versatile one can see it being used for all sorts of occasions.
