LeNae's Designer Tip: Add color to your stamped image, by using colored pencils to add “spot” color on the “Merry Christmas” stamp at the bottom of the card.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Place the card fold at the top. Cut 1" off the bottom of the card front. Cut a red 5 5/8”x3 1/4” rectangle of red poinsettia paper; ink the edges and mat with green paper, leaving a 1/8” wide border. Ink the edges. Stamp “’tis the season” in the upper right corner.
  2. In black, repeat stamping “Happy Holidays” across and down on a medium white poinsettia flower. Layer with a larger red poinsettia flower and secure to the left side of the red rectangle using a star brad.
  3. Stamp “Celebrate the season” on the round green tag, punch a hole and thread with floss. Secure the tag to the red paper with a star brad and glue the end of the floss under the white poinsettia flower. Glue the mat to the card front.
  4. Inside the card: Stamp “Merry Christmas” at the bottom inside back, showing from the front of the card. Use pencils to color the ribbons red and the holly shades of green. Glue a 3/8” wide strip of red poinsettia paper near the top of the inside back and stamp “Happy Holidays” under the strip.
