Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.


For today's card I decided to go very "clean & simple" and create a one-layer card using a couple of the stamps from the Seasonal Ornaments stamp set and the compatible Ornaments Die Set.  The size of the card is 119x119mm, the sentiment was printed straight onto the card base, the top part was embossed with a snowy CB EF (can't remember exactly what it's called), a bit of grosgrain ribbon wrapped around, and some Baker's Twine from Sew Sweet used to string up the ornaments. Easy! :)  I really love the striking combination of red and white for CAS Christmas cards and I hope you do too! :)

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check the Whimsy Blog tomorrow for more new release creations!
