Using non-Christmas set for a Christmas Card

Hi everyone! Thanks for coming by to Lawnscaping Challenge blog. It's me, Marina, here again to share with you a new card that I've made. Last month, I used a Christmas stamp set to make a non-Christmas card, but today, I'm doing the opposite. Kind of ;)

I've taken the Sweater Weather stamp set to make a little tree. I know that my choice of colours still looks like a Fall theme card but you can turn it into a christmas card by the magic of sentiments & embellishments.


For this card, I only use 3 ink colours, Green, Red and Orange. But if you look closely, there's 2 shades of green. I've used the second-generation stamping technique to make different dimensions to the tree. It's a great way to get more out of the ink pads you already have.


I've added the red and glittery bow to make the card look Christmas-y. The sentiments are from the Winter Penguin & Sweet Christmas.





Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think and hope to see you again!
