Poinsettia Bouquet

Hello everyone,

Today's Christmas card looks infinitely more complicated than it actually is.

The printed paper is Stampin' Up Season of Cheer layered on Soft Sky.  The image is Stampin' Up Reason for the Season stamped in Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi, Crushed Curry and Close To My Heart Topiary and Tulip on Whisper White, highlighted with Wink of Stella Clear 999, and layered on more Soft Sky.  The sentiment is also Stampin' Up Reason for the Season stamped in Early Espresso on Whisper White.

Normally, a two-step stamp like this one is not necessarily what you'd use to design for beginners.  In this case however the stamps are see through acrylic so it is really easy to line up the various layers.  You don't need to use a stamp positioner to get beautiful results.  Further, it doesn't have to be perfectly aligned, there is wiggle room and it will still look great.  I think the ladies will be quite enamored with the magic of a two-step stamp.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
