  I'm up on the Stamp Simply blog today sharing an elegant holiday card. Even though I love them, I've never been very good at using the ink drop papers that Stamp Simply carries, but I think I'm finally figuring out some ways to create with them. For this card I stamped the holly branch from Christmas Blessings around the edge of my background paper using evergreen bough distress ink. I love the subtle pattern it adds, and the beautiful way the gold mirror paper adds shimmer and shine!

 Supplies and Tools from Stamp Simply:

Other Supplies:

  • Arteza Real Brush Pens
  • Evergreen Bough Distress Ink (Ranger)
  • Gold Wire
  • Dashing Rectangles Dies (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
