So Simple It Should Be a Crime!
I adore these border stamps from Hero Arts but often struggle with using them. When I was working on Christmas notecard sets for teachers, I pulled out these two and experimented.
It oughta be illegal to stamp something so simply and yet have it turn out so very, very perfectly.
I'm saving this set for end-of-year gifts since it just feels too spring-y for Christmas. But if you have any border stamps similar to this that are holiday-themed, I think you should go right ahead and give these simple gift sets to everyone you know. Yes, it might feel criminally easy, but you know what? Sweat doesn't make a gift more special. Sweat is icky.
But SIMPLICITY ROCKS!
