Feeling corny...

Today’s card is a fall card made with a Christmas stamp!  Yep!

This look was achieved by using one of the vein stamps from the new SU! Reason for the Season stamp set.  I think this stamp set is quite stunning on its own but when I saw the vein stamps in it – I immediately thought wreath!

I used several different inks and first and second generation stamping to make this image.  I tried bending the stamp a bit to make an round shaped wreath but it didn’t turn out quite like I wanted it.  So I ended up with this type instead.

I only used one vein stamp and started by stamping memento rich cocoa full strength and then a second and third time.  The other colors are crushed curry, cajun craze and pear pizzazz all made with second generation stamping until my image looked “full” enough.

I added a bit of copper metallic thread, a couple of the into the woods elements, and the sentiment.  You should recognize that sentiment as I used it yesterday.  I just did a bit of surgery and cut the stamp apart.  My cardfront is rustic cream that I layered on a piece of cajun craze and crumbcake.

That was all there was to it!  I like to find alternate uses for my stamps when I can.  I look forward to using this vein stamp for it’s real purpose – in a poinsetta leaf!
