Out of the Drawer - simple Christmas card

I have so many Christmas stamps, it's about time I used more of them.  Out of the Drawer today is this sentiment from a Woodware holly-themed clear stamp set, I think it's about two or maybe even three years old.

This is a quick and simple card, I used some paper from a magazine freebie 6x6 paper pad (maybe Bo Bunny?) for the background mat.  The sentiment is stamped and embossed in silver with the leaves and berries coloured in, then the whole shape was hand-cut.  I attached the sentiment using 1mm foam near the top right corner and added a ribbon down the left side.  Shame I can't tie better knots, but there you go :-)


  1. Gorgeous card, I really need to start making this years Christmas cards.

  2. It's lovely and an easy design to replicate if you need more. Well done on using another unused stamp - to my shame I have quite a few so I'm on a mission to use them before buying more
