Festive Cheer

Hello bloggers!  I wanted to share one of the Stamps To Die For that matches the Marilynne die from the Festive release.  I used a piece of Pixie Powdered card as the background.  It was made with Midnight Blue and Purple Violet.  I cut the Felicity die in white as a backdrop.  I stamped The Marilynne's Lamplight Stamp To Die For in black.  I used Distress Markers to colour it in.    I cut it out with the matching Marilynne die and added it to the centre with foam.  This card would be a good one for batch cardmaking but if you want to add a bit more detail to it, you can stamp the stamp again and then cut out the wreath or the sign or birds and layer them up too!  I completed the card with a simple white on white mat and layer.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  7 1/4" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Your stamp is worth buying for those cuts little birds alone. The pixie powder background colours are definitely a winner in my book.
