Make Your Own Stamps :)

After adding the labels to one of my clear mount stamp sets, I had a big chunk of blank rubber left over. I was looking at it and thinking it was such a shame to waste that big chunk of rubber, lol! So I die cut the chunk of rubber with my Big Shot and my Stocking Accents die :D. The background paper you see on the card below was stamped with my new die cut stamps, except for the stars. Pretty nifty, huh? After I stamped the background, I ran the card stock through my Big Shot in the Square Lattice embossing folder to add some texture. I also ran my Cherry Cobbler faux ribbon (card stock) through my Big Shot in the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. This was a really quick card to make!

 On the inside, I added my sentiment (retired stamp set) in Cherry Cobbler, and die cut the holly leaves from Wild Wasabi and added a little punched heart in Cherry Cobbler- done!
Wishing you a wonderful day today!
