Feature Friday with Skipping Stones Design!!

Hello and Happy Friday!

Welcome to another Feature Friday with Skipping Stones Design!  This month, you have seen a lot of Christmas cards using our newest set, Christmas Song and some older sets including Christmas Swirls and Wise Men. (Both of these sets are on sale through the end of the month if you act fast!)

For a little twist today, I decided to make a Holiday card using a few sets that are not specifically geared towards that special time of year.... enter Sentiment Frames and Timeless Textures.... and here's what I came up with:

Using the Moroccan tile image from Timeless Textures, I stamped it repeatedly on a piece of white cardstock.  This stamp fits together like a puzzle and you can pretty quickly fill an entire panel. I mounted the stamped panel on black cardstock then wrapped a ribbon around the panel and tied it in a bow.  I added a wee little button tied with a little baker's twine to the bow.

The sentiment from Sentiment Frames was stamped in black ink on white cardstock then mounted to a piece of black cardstock that features a little scalloped edge.  I then adhered the whole thing to a piece of patterned paper (Echo Park) that I had trimmed and adhered to a standard white card base.

There you have it!  A stylin' and festive card using sets that you may not have imagined as "holiday" fare.  Take a look at your stash, with the right colors and treatment, almost any set can have a jolly festive feel!

Thanks for stopping by!
