Holiday card with non-holiday stamps

Hi everyone! It’s Ria here today.

I’m excited to share a holiday card project using non-holiday stamp set 🙂

I don’t have a large collection of holiday theme stamp sets and its nice to do Christmas cards using stamp sets that you may already have that are non-Christmas-sy in theme. A good way to stretch your stamps isn’t it?

Here I used the Small Things stamp set, a general hello, everyday stamp set type. I used the fox as my main focal point and used more traditional Christmas color like red and greens. Here, I used buttons to create the Christmas holly.


I also add texture in the green tag paper by stamping the Woodgrain background stamp.

There are other small elements that I used like these stamped circles, again keeping my red and green colors for consistency.


For the background, I created my own by stamping the circle with white ink, it looks like snow using the white ink pad 🙂

and here the full card.
