Talking about all those single stamps made me have a look at one of my favourite sets, "Word Play". Instead of simply having a sentiment, you have a mini work of art. Take the stamp for Christmas, for example. It's easy to find a stamp that says "tidings of comfort and joy". It can come in a variety of fonts, from simple to quite ornate. What I love about the stamp in "Word Play" is that it combines art with the letters. In other words, "joy" is very large, has a solid, upper case "J", the "O" is actually an ornament, and the "Y" is beautifully penned.
Just looking at that stamp gave me an idea for a card, so I went with it. The resulting card really makes me happy. It's probably my favourite Christmas card so far. I love the colours, the background...well, the whole of it. Have a look and see what you think.
A front like that requires a fancy interior, in my opinion. So I stamped the skates from Winter Memories onto Whisper White and cut that out with the Ornament framelit. After adhering it to the Whisper White inside the card, I cut around the top left, along the shape of the ornament.
I love the way this turned out! And it all happened because I was admiring the Christmas stamp from the "Word Art" stamp set. This is definitely one of the stamps I would buy as a single!
