Final Round of Victorian Christmas Cards

My love affair with the Crafty Secrets Victorian Christmas stamp set is officially over!. These last two cards complete my submissions to Papertrix, a wonderful stamp store located in Nashville, Indiana. I was delighted to be a card-designer for them and it kicked my Christmas Card-Making MoJo in high gear! My first card features tiny mini-pearls around the scallop. My second card did not photograph well because I could not get the flash to adjust to the wonderful, beautiful, gold & silver embossing ... but you get the idea, yes?

Let's dish for a quick minute about art-sketch stamps, such as this Victorian Christmas set. Here's the thing. It was a real challenge for me to create with these images. I found them to stamp so beautifully that it was almost hard to mess with Mother Nature! Some cards I liked more than others (particularly Father Time). Overall, I'm glad I stretched myself creatively.

So ...bye bye Victorian Christmas, my stamp stash awaits me! I'm headed for cutsie tootsie, or simply stunning, or bold and beautiful, or crisp and clear. Gonna be so much fun! The point is ... Creativity is Good!
