This week in the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop with the Art With Heart demonstrator team, I have a very simple card for you with a fun background technique.
I selected four separate greeting stamps from the Christmas to Remember stamp set and placed them rubber side down on my Very Vanilla card stock, on the bed of the Stamparatus. I closed the plate, making the cling stamps stick to it, then re-opened it, inked up all four stamps with Crumb Cake, then closed the plate again.
I then moved the plate down two hinge notches on the Stamparatus base, and moved the card across, first stamping to the left, then stamping to the right, to give me a repeat but off-set pattern. I stamped four times in total to do my card background, stamping in Crumb Cake ink each time.
The background was layered onto a Cherry Cobbler card base, and then to finish the card, I simply added some stamped, die-cut holly and berries, and a greeting stamp. The holly & berries are also on the inside of the card.
I really love how simple and elegant this card is. It would be an easy one to churn out a bit of a production line for your Christmas mailing.
