I love to take a stamp set that is not featured as a Christmas stamp set and create a Christmas card with it. I decided to make this card a birthday card as I have several friends and family with January birthdays! The Beauty of Friendship photopolymer stamp set (#154983) which comes in the Beauty of Friendship Bundle (#155834) was my inspiration. I started with a Balmy Blue card base and added a layer of Basic White cut with a die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies (#151820) On the Basic White layer I stamped the two tree stamps in Evening Evergreen and Mint Macaron. The sentiment is from Pansy Patch (#154999) and stamped in Balmy Blue. The bow is Balmy Blue retired ribbon.
I also used the Inspiring Canopy Dies (#155963) as the main feature on another card. The card base and trees are Basic White. The blue patterned paper is from the Beauty of the Earth 12 x 12 DSP (Designer Series Paper) (#155841) and backed with a piece of Night of Navy. The cardinal came from the Beautiful Trees Dies (#155840). The sentiment from Christmas to Remember (#156300) is stamped in Night of Navy.
Be sure to look through the Annual catalog and find the stamp sets you may have missed your first 20 times looking through the catalog!
