I sat down recently and spent a morning playing with the beautiful With Love At Christmas stamp set. I love all the possibilities this stamp set gives. I also used a few other products for a complete coordinating look for my creations.
I started by stamping several bouquets in different ink combinations. I used two bouquets for this card. I made a quick watercolored background with two green watercolors that matched the bouquet leaves. I trimmed the finished panel with a Crimped Frame Die, then stamped and gold heat-embossed the sentiment. I used thin foam squares to attach the flowers, trimming the side edges away before attaching the panel to a card base.
There’s several stamps in the set to help embellish coordinating envelopes. I love this option.
I stamped out several envelope labels, and used the Addressed Die to die-cut them. I used a simple sentiment to finish the label for this envelope, and topped it with a bouquet. To finish the envelope, I added red stripes to the envelope flap by blending red dye ink over the striped Flappable Stencil.
Since I still had a few bouquets let, I decided to use them to embellish handmade gift card holders. I used the striped stencil and red ink again to add stripes to the holders, and Pine Needles and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxides to add color to the pockets.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Be sure to stop by The Greetery Blog for more inspiration.

Angelica, your first card with the softness of the watercolored background and gorgeous florals is fabulous. Love your pretty gift card holders, too. Even though I say I don’t need more florals, I’m pretty sure I need these now.
Thank you for your kind words! Yes, this is a beautiful stamp set.
So very pretty. Love your cards.
Very pretty projects. I love that first card; it’s so soft and pretty. That gift card holder is gorgeous.
