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.



  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.
