My September stamps are Christmas, and I've been making samples and challenge cards with them. LOVE the stamps, and I'm having a blast with the stamps.
Here's one of the challenge cards I made last week. The challenge (Ways To Use It 287 on SCS) was to use twine on a card. Hmmm ... I like using twine, so this one was great!
Using Our Savior's Birth set, I created that beautiful manger with the star. I sponged the edges a bit and mounted it on a shadow layer. The twin is anchored behind the image layers on one side and on the other with a brad. The stitching around the blue layer was done with a programmed stitch on my sewing machine. I thought that stitch was perfect for this card. The label on which the sentiment was placed was cut and embossed using a combo die/folder made for the Cuttlebug called Fanciful Layers, and then, it was sponged with brown. The background layer was distressed along the edges.
