I have a Christmas card to share today.  I am also sharing a little tip about the photopolymer stamps.

 

 

These stamps are all from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set.  As I mentioned above, they are the photopolymer stamps and that means they are flexible.  Do you see where I am going?  The light string is included in the set and is already bent a little.  The Making Spirits Bright stamp is straight.  But because of the flexibility of the material, it can be arched a bit.

To do this little trick, I attached the green light string to one side of the H Stamp Block.  I turned it over on my grid paper and easily bent the sentiment to the same arch.  It was pretty easy to see through the block and see the line from the other side.  I simply placed the sentiment on the line.  It was not perfect, but close enough for me.  And it only took a minute to do.  You could use the same theory with the Stamparatus by stamping the line, and then laying the sentiment on the line where you want it and picking it up with the next panel.

The light bulbs are stamped and punched out using the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.  The punch looks like a shoe print to me!  I went over the light bulbs with the Clear Wink of Stella to give them a bit of a shine.  I am not sure how well that shows in the photo.  The Christmas Tree paper is from the Wrapped In Plaid 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  It is one of the reverse sides to a plaid.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please return tomorrow for a non-holiday card I have prepared.
