Good Greetings Holiday Card

I have another share today... this time with paper! We're going camping for the rest of the week and won't be posting until later this week so I'm sharing two things today. I just love camping, it always relaxes me so much! I definitely need some R&R after the busy summer I've had.
I have another holiday card and sneak peek for you today. I used the upcoming hostess stamp set that will be available when you host a Stampin' Up! workshop and have a qualifying party. It is such a great set with greetings for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day and Halloween - a few could work for other occasions too! After I made the Who is your Santa card I wanted to try another holiday card. I decided to stamp the Merry & Bright and Joy & Peace sentiments in rows (using my much loved Stamp-a-ma-jig!). It's hard to line up wood mount stamps perfectly so it's definitely a go to tool! I added a pop of colour in the center using Real Red ink for the Merry Christmas sentiment and the Peace & Joy  in the center in Mossy Meadow. To finish it all off I made some flags with random scraps of cardstock and just flagged the edges with the Hexagon Punch. I stapled them all together and adhered to my card with a dimensional and a piece of Basic Black baker's twine. I'm not going to lie, this card - because of all the stamp-a-ma-jigging... took a while, but I like how it turned out! Hope you do too.
