I'm stopping by today with a card I made while playing with my "early-Christmas-present-to-myself" stamp and die set from Simon Says Stamp called Reason for the Season. I am so thrilled to have a nice stamp set that depicts the true meaning of Christmas. Just beautiful!
I'm also thrilled to be able to play along in the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #6 in which the theme is die cutting. So glad that my stamp and die set arrived when it did! I have been meaning to play along with this challenge for some time now...and Barb does such a wonderful job moderating them each week! Be sure to check it out HERE for all the rules.
I stamped a heavy piece of kraft-colored cardboard with a Hero Arts woodgrain background stamp, then die cut the manger. I popped up the outline section so it would add some depth to the scene, although it is hard to tell in my photos. I also added some raffia as hay/straw. Even with all that, the card is still relatively flat for mailing purposes.
I adore this stamp and die set. It reminds me of the Willow Tree figurines like this one:
Thanks for stopping by today, I do appreciate your visits!
