And the beautiful stamp set from Craftyscrappers that i have used to create these cards is called, ” Christmas Wishes

ST-FEST-33.jpg
The stamp set size that i have used is of 5x5inch size, which is the medium size, used in making A3 cards,envelopes and layouts.
This stamp set, has so many beautiful elements and really wonderfully matching sentiments to go along.
There are three different sized and variation poinsettia flowers which are just perfect for any Christmas theme project, and the beautiful holy leaves, one is the swirl holy leaves, great for creating Christmas wreaths and the small Holy leaf to embellish your projects and to make custom patterned backgrounds for your Christmas cards.
This stamp set also has a big sentiment, “Christmas” which is hand lettered along with coordinating sub sentiments that will create different sentiments as per choice.

 

Lets go through the making process of these three cards, one by one now…
