A Very Merry Stamp Set

I love Christmas and everything that goes with that wonderful time of the year and this month's special is so much fun to stamp with! It's called "Very Merry Christmas."
I started my card with a CTMH Ruby cardstock base, stamped the ornament shape with ruby ink in a random pattern, then I added a cocoa strip of cardstock and a colonial white strip that was run through the Big Shot with a snowflake embossing folder.
The new CTMH Artiste cartridge cut this adorable tag and the Stamp of the Month has this sentiment that stamps perfectly onto my shape. I stamped the number in Cocoa ink again and then cut those numbers out and 3D mounted them onto the Ruby stamped numbers. I also cut an additional tag from cocoa cardstock 1/4" larger than my colonial white tag.
The ribbon is grosgrain 3097 from Wal-Mart and the opaques were added for extra dimension. If you love this card make sure you place your order before this special goes ends.
The inside sentiment combines 2 stamps to make this saying and the snowflakes were cut by the Cricut and my Artiste cartridge. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thank you Sharon! It worked well to create my own B&T background with that ornament stamp. I love the new Ruby colored paper and ink!
