If you're a regular visitor, you know that I love vintage images.  But...I own a TON of stamps.  Drawers and drawers full.  I realized that I've been seriously neglecting them.  And while I will of course continue my love affair with vintage images, I'm committing to including a stamped element whenever possible.  Call it an early New Year's Resolution.  J

Today's card is very simple...a little Scandinavian looking with it's red and white color scheme and rustic snowflake image.  This would be great for multiples in a pinch.  And look, no vintage image!

The Details:
  • The snowflake stamp is embossed in opaque white on PTI Pure Poppy.  A white button tied with red and white baker's twine accents the center.  Simple, clean, and bold!
  • A strip of Christmas chevron washi tape forms a border and white gel pen adds a "stitched" detail.
  • The "12.25" banner is stamped in green pigment, fussy cut, and stapled with Tim Holtz's tiny attacher.
And done!
