Using alphabet stamps on Christmas cards is particularly easy with short words like joy, noel, and peace. Christmas is a harder word to work with, but you can cover it with a nice Merry Christmas sentiment on the inside of the card.
Today's card uses the easiest holiday word a stamper can use.
To add interest to this simple card, I got jiggy with the layered matting. Instead of using all white layers, I replaced the largest layer with StampinUp real red. So the layers from top to bottom are
1. the raised, stamped circles
2. a solid white panel
3. a 1/16" larger white panel
4. a 1/2" larger red panel
5. a 1/16" larger white panel
6. a white card base
Whew! Six layers on a Lateblossom card!
And a candy-cane stamped envelope completes the project.
And there you go. Joy to you!
Mercy, grace, peace, love, and joy,
