The Merry Patterns Stamp set is an exclusive set for Hostess until the end of October! When you host a Stampin' Up! party during the month with sales of $500 or more, you will receive this stamp set for free! The Artisan Design team have been busy behind the scenes designing up a storm of inspiration for you for this second hop! If you missed the first, you can see it HERE.
I had fun with the candle stamp in this set! They are quite short candles and I thought it would be fun to make them appear longer. I first cut my front panel in two. I stamped the candles across the top of one and the bottom of the other, making sure they lined up. I then lay them on my Crumb Cake card base so I could see where I needed to stamp my sentiment.
I added pine boughs across the top and sponged in a little Garden Green ink to create depth before adhering the top and bottom panels with Dimensionals.
A matching gift bag is a nice way to complete a gift and I have used the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper and fabulous Jute Twine to make it. The Jute twine makes great sturdy handles!
