I've agreed to help a local women's group make around 200 Christmas cards to be distributed to local nursing homes so I've been searching for some good Christmas paper and simple card ideas.
Stampin' Up has a set of stamps, Language of Friendship, that coordinates with their Two Step Bird Extra Large punch. The stamps are aligned perfectly for the punch. You just stamp them, color them and punch all three pieces out at one time.
I recommend that you color outside the lines of the stamps, just a little, so you don't have any white edges showing after you punch them out. The images were colored with Promarkers and the sentiment is a Studio G stamp.
