I know I did use the christmas sets to make this card but, you can look through the sets you can have pick up small items like gift boxes, flowers, starts etc to make your own background. I used the tiny images from the baaah humbug set. I usually like to fill the whole card base but I thought I'll just put it at the bottom and use Peeled Paint Distress Ink to add quick colour. The red and gold are just some stickles. You can also use copics or other things that you have.
I used the violet's ABC to make my own customised sentiment to combine with the baaah humbug set. That's really it. :D I hope you are inspired and I would love to see what cards you've been making.
I hope it will inspire you to find more looks for your stamps! Cheers!
