I accepted a couple of challenges on Paper Wings and start on my Christmas cards at the same time! Surprised?? Anyway, this first card uses patterned paper (Merry Wishes now retired but I have lots!) and the Cardstock Stacks. I stamped the Noel using the Swirly Bet and Palette Hybrid Noir ink. It's such a simple design but I sure like it!
This 2nd card also used the Merry Wishes paper collection and scrap piece of white cardstock. The stamped "Joy" is from the Whimsical Greetings set and stamped using L'Amore Palette Hybrid ink, I even inked the edges of the text cardstock. I did raise 2 of the small squares and the text using foam mounting tape or pop dots, which ever you have!
What's neat is that both these cards use so few supplies! You probably have some patterned and plain paper and a text stamp that you really like or even an alphabet set to make your own horizontal word, if you like.
