Autumn Days for Christmas

Although the stamp set is called Autumn Days I have used one of the stamps to make a christmas card.  It is well worth looking at your stamp sets and figuring out what other occassions they can be used for. You will be surprised just how versatile the Stampin' Up! sets are.

Using a Very Vanilla card base made from card stock I stamped the pinecone stamp in the centre using Early Espresso and Garden Green Stampin' Write Markers.

I then added a small bow made from Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and then also used a glue pen and some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter to add a bit of sparkle. Unfortuneately my photography has not done it justice.

I did think about adding a christmas message on the front and played around with a few,  but as you may have noticed I tend to keep my cards clean and simple so this time round I decided against one.
