Christmas Card Using a Non-Christmas Stamp

Hi Friends,
Here is a fun idea for a quick Christmas card.  Try looking at your non-holiday stamp supplies in a new light.  These little trees are actually the body of a little lady image.  So get thinking "outside the box."  I hope this card inspires you to stretch your supplies and your creativity.  Happy Holidays!

Directions:
  1. Stamp both Phoebe lady stamps onto white card stock with black ink.
  2. Color the body of one which will become a tree.  Next, fussy cut all 3 trees.
  3. Punch 3 stars with a paper punch from white card stock. Use a black marker to outline 1 star.
  4. Add a bit of black card stock to form a tree trunk and adhere the middle tree with foam tape to the center of the card. 
  5. Add a bit of green card stock to form tree trunks, assemble the white trees, and attach to each side.
  6. Stamp a checkerboard border with black ink and attach along the bottom edge of the card.
  7. Finally, use black ink to stamp clusters of stars around the Christmas trees.
