Catherine Pooler's Holiday Stamp of Approval

Hi folks! Welcome to the holiday Stamp of Approval Box Blog Hop by Catherine Pooler! I'm joining some of the Winnie & Walter gals, as there is a fabulous w&w stamp set in this Stamp of Approval Box.



This set, along with most of the other contents of the box, won't be available to purchase individually until sometime in 2016. So if you want it now, you need the box!


 
The cute, candy cane stripe, border stamp makes a great frame for featuring something on your card. In this case, it's an adorable tree with a fabulously scripted sentiment. If you're making a set of these cards, you can pick from 7 different Christmas trees, and 3 different sentiments (peace/love/joy) to really mix it up.

 


I wrapped a bit of a doily on the top and secured the loose charcoal paper with my Tiny Attacher. The paper is curled up slightly to give it more presence. It's a 3D element without the bulk to make mailing easier. So fun to make!
 
Your next stop is Heather's blog, and you won't want to miss her fabulously modern and graphic creation. Here's a list of the complete hop:
Two winners will be randomly picked from all the comments throughout the blog hop to receive the Holiday Magic Collection Stamp of Approval Box. Comments must be placed by Friday, noon EST to be considered for the prize.

Thanks for stopping by!
