A Simple Old Fashioned Christmas

A Bootiful Occasion is a pretty neat stamp set, but these boots had me stumped. My "studio" (sounds fun!) is proof that I've tried a number of different ways of presenting them before I came up with this. I like it, it's simple and I feel good.

Stamped on Real Red with Versamark and then embossed using White Stampin' Up! Emboss Powder adds a wintery touch. The card front was embossed with the Delicate Designs Folder that gives the impression of snowflakes in the background.

And then, back to the workbench! I CASE'd a card from the Stampin' Up! catalog and created this card. I hope you use your catalog for inspiration - it's amazing how many different ways you can use the same stamp set. A little Victorian and a completely different feel.

And keep watching for a Cowboy Christmas card coming soon featuring the great cowboy (or girl, in this case) boot stamp that is also part of this set. Shop now!
