Whimsy Stamps 12 Days of Christmas - Day 2


Hi friends, it's day 2 of Whimsy Stamps Twelve Days of Christmas, and I'm up!  I wanted to do something a little modern for my card today, and this is what I came up with:

I started by stamping black stripes (Basic Backgrounds and Borders) on a white base.  I set it aside while I die cut the large word Merry die from green cardstock twice, stacked them up, and stamped the words from Christmas Backgrounds on it.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment (Christmas Greetings) on a white panel, and glued on the "Merry".  I stamped a tree (Oh, Christmas Tree ) on scrap paper, cut it out, popped it up on my main panel, and added some red enamel dots.  I tied silver cording on it before adhering my main panel and a black cardstock strip on my striped base.
Make sure you stop by the Whimsy Blog for all the details and to see how you can enter the giveaway!  Thanks for stopping by.
