Another card created with a stamp from the "Perfect Presents" set. Again, a scrap of patterned paper was used for the background. The ribbon is a scrap (by May Arts).
I used the large and small SU tag punches to punch the stamped image and tag mount. (Ruby Red ink and card). I think the punches are a quick and easy way to create a quick card by double mounting a tag in any number of ways over a patterned background.
The snowman from the "Perfect Presents" set (one of my favourite) was stamped in Ruby Red ink and mounted on Mellow Moss card. The snowman background paper is non-SU (it's a scrap of Basic Grey paper which I found lying on my desk and it seemed an ideal match!), as is the ribbon (again, a scrap from my desk; I'm trying to be diligent by using up bits and pieces). I like the effect. This is a Christmas card for a friend who loves snow!
I hate making sympathy cards. I think I've made a total of three; I usually buy them instead. On that basis, I didn't have a Stampin' Up set which was entirely suitable; "Close as a Memory" is an appropriate set, but I don't have it yet. The only "sympathy" stamp I have is the (non-SU) one shown in the photo. I used it with the Carte Postale set (for the leaf within the circle/scallop) and matching wheel for the background. The background ink is Old Olive. I think it works - it's quite simple and plain and that's what I wanted.
