I have another set of 3x3 Christmas card for you today

Today I am again using the Better Together Stamp Set and I have teamed it up with the Background Bits Stamp Set.

I secured my 3 inch squares with masking tape

I colour-washed  each one with a different coloured Ink using the Aqua Painter

Once dried I stamped each square with the "flower" stamp with the Ink that matched the colour-wash.
I then stamped the sentiment, half in Cherry Cobbler Ink and the other half in Emerald Envy Ink.

I then removed the masking tape and mounted them on the base cards.
Half on Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the other half on Emerald Envy cardstock to match with the sentiment.

I also made a matching envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.

If you don't want to make your own (they are Super Easy)...there are 3x3 envelopes in the Autumn/Winter Catalogue

So have a go....take a good look at the stamp sets you have....you never know what you could come up with.
