Penny Black Simplicity – Merry and Bright

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS Christmas card showcasing the Penny Black Slapstick/Cling background stamp 40-489 Elaborate.

To create the background panel, I applied Festive Berries and Wild Honey Distress Inks to the 40-489 Elaborate stamp allowing them to blend. I have a feeling that I’ll be using this background stamp in future holiday projects – can you see it stamped silver on deep red? gold on green?

The sentiment from 30-382 Yuletide Wishes was cut with a circle die. I added a vellum circle behind, cut with a die sized just larger than the white sentiment circle.

I cut the greenery with 51-262 Poinsettia Bough and 51-249 Winter Garland from watercolor cardstock colored with Peeled Paint, Wild Honey and Festive Berries Distress Inks.

I created a card with similar design and supplies for the Penny Black Simplicity site. I hope you’ll head over to take a look at that take!
