Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the new Boutique Borders Stamp Set. I used three colors of Mama Elephant Pigment Ink (Mojito, Lemongrass and Posh PInk) with one of the border stamps to create my own plaid patterned paper background on the die cut sittched rectangle die cut using the Index Card Creative Cuts dies.
The background is super bright, which I love, however stamping the hanging snowflakes and greeting directly on the background wouldn't make them "pop"! Instead, I die cut the scallop rectangle from vellum using the Index Card Creative Cuts dies and stamped and embossed the images and greeting on it before adhering it over the bright background. You still get the fabulous background and the stamped and embossed images are easily seen as they're on vellum!
To see how I put this holiday card together from start to finish, watch out the video below or view on youtube HERE:
