Yes I know it looks like a Christmas card but life meant this Magical Christmas Stamp and Die set sat on my desk unused and I was itching to use them.

I first stamped with Dark Chocolate the fabulous stag head, I used the die on a scrap piece of card so I could put the negative over my stamped image and before adding the die. I did take a bit of time placing the die and it was so worth it.

I then used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Oval to give me a background for the Stags Head. I wondered whether the border could be cut down. It probably could but I loved how it turned out with the die so I left it alone.

The main mat was Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle using matching cardstock which allows me just a touch of mat and layering.

It still needed something so I used Lucy's White Christmas Shaker mix and added a few down the sides.
Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.



You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in
