The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: frame it.
The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: No stamps allowed!. Blimey and that in Stamptember lol...a challenge indeed as I like my critter stamps ;-).
So I thought long and hard and came up with this card with diecutting only. I've used the Simon Says Stamp Joyful frame, obviously, and a holly twig from Marianne Design. I've diecut the holly from green cardstock and the berries from glitter cardstock.
I diecut the Joyful frame from a cardpanel. At first I wanted to use the skinny frame and words,but while I was using this negativeto
place back the letters, I thought it looked far more CAS. So I carefully peeled off the skinny frame from the carbase on which I had applied Fired Brick Distress ink.
Mounted everything flush with taperunner, I ended up with two frames, the skinny red on and the one around the cardpanel. I think this looks so stylish. I've added the Holly twig just for those who need more detail, otherwise I would have left it off;-).
