I had a ton of ideas when I first saw this set because, lucky for me, I own two sets of the Spellbinders dies that coordinate with these stamps! In the end I went with something fun, bright and funky to shake things up. I love using non traditional colors for Christmas.
My card was stamped along the bottom using the chevron pattern from Off Beat Backgrounds. I then stamped the ornament and added polka dots in the white space with a green gel pen. The raised and glittered effect is hard to see in the photos, but it's really fun and funky in person:
I used a red gel pen for the ornament and a white gel pen on both cards to make the ornament appear as if it were hanging down the card.
Kinda reminds me of peppermint candies for Christmas!
