Autumn for Christmas

I just love spending Tuesdays here on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog! Thanks so much for coming by today!

Today I have used the autumn-themed Leaf Silhouettes stamp set to create. . .a Christmas card!
I stamped the leaves in dark red ink onto red cardstock to create my poinsettia petals, plus dark green ink on light green cardsstock to create the leaves. 

I pieced it all together, adhered it with foam tape to some lovely textured cardstock, and added a sentiment and twine.  Really, to mass produce this card wouldn't be too bad, because you could cut out all the leaves and petals while watching tv, or sitting in the school car line! (I get a lot of cutting done in the car line!)

I love to mix things up and use stamps outside of their theme because it breathes new life into our stamp stash.  I challenge you to see what stamps you can repurpose for other themes. 

I'm so glad you stopped by today! I'm over at my blog, Lauralooloo, today too, if you'd like to stop by and say HI! :)

Very pretty Laura. Such a neat idea making the poinsettia with the leaf images.
