Stretching Night Before Christmas Set

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi friends,

Svitlana is here. Today I want to share very simple one layer card using Night Before Christmas Stamp Set.  This set has two pretty big trees with sentiments inside. Which themselves already have a ready Christmas card. So  you can simply stamp a tree and call it a card.

But today I want to show how you can stretch this set a bit. The top and sides of there trees totally can work as separate one. And in me card today I used them in this role.

I started my making a card base out of Solar White Cardstock. Then I cut a negative circle mask out of masking paper using a die from Halftone Circles Nesting Die Set. I applied the mask onto the card base and blended Dusk and Desert Night Dye Ink onto the inside area.

Next I stamped the trees using Desert Night Dye Ink and stamping only the top of side parts. I added some white paint splatters and removed the mask.

Lastly I white embossed a sentiment from Happy Holidays Stamp Set and the card was ready. This design can work for any winter holiday card.

Hope you like my stretching Night Before Christmas Stamp Set idea and have a great day!
