I usually don't start my Christmas cards until late late October, but I was really excited about some great stamps that DRS Designs recently sent me. Using the Simple Berry Branch, Small Merry Christmas, and Large Original Plaid, I made this:
I stamped the purple base card with the Plaid, but just left it as vertical stripes- it's a very versatile stamp! To add color to the berry branch, I embroidered little french knots (my favorite!) in 2 shades of red to match the sentiment. The stamping on the ornament is all embossed, to give it a nice shine. Lastly, I threaded the black ribbon through silver eyelets punched in the top layer.
