Today I decided to use the Gina K Design Stamp Duo Very Merry. For my first I took a white pre-made card from Paper Studio. My designer paper is from Paper Pizazz's Coordinating Navy Papers. I didn't have a white tag, so I traced a tag onto white cardstock and cut it out and applied some more of the navy dp. I stamped the tree image from Merry tree in pastel ink and cut the tree out by hand. Then I turned it over because I wanted a white tree. I scattered clear adhesive gems on the tree. I glued the tree to the tag. I tied a silver bow with wrapping ribbon on the tag. I emboss the word Merry with Stampendous detail silver embossing powder and tied it around the bow and glued the tag to the card.
For my next card, I used the same set. I love this set! I took a pre-made card and then cut a smaller piece of white card stock and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Swirl embossing folder. I framed the piece with American Craft Gold Linen cardstock. I stamped the Merry Christmas with Stampendous detal Gold embossing powder, cut it out by hand into a rectangle and framed it with the same paper. I took the tree stamp, using Versamark, stamped it three times and embossed them with the Gold ep. I cut the trees out and glued them to the swirled panel. I used the same adhesive gems for the stars in the trees and to accent the Merry Christmas.
