Merriest Moments for Sunday Stamps 264

 I liked the sketch at Sunday Stamps this week and used it for inspiration for one of the new Christmas sets in the July-December Mini Catalogue, Merriest Moments.

Merriest Moments has a matching die set, Merriest Frames, which in addition to outline dies for the stamped images, includes some of the most jaw-droppingly fabulous frames. However, it's such a lovely set that it's amazing all by itself, without the fancy add-ons. 😀

I've used some of the foliage stamps to create a background for a single poinsettia, embellished with a die cut centre piece and an In-Colour jewel.

The background DSP is from the Tidings of Christmas DSP stack. I embossed the panel, using Tasteful Textiles, for extra interest. 

This simple and sweet card would be suitable for mass-production come Christmas time, although you could miss out embossing the DSP to speed it along even more. 

Update: Delighted to be chosen as a Top Cup at Sunday Stamps.
