Big Christmas Collection Christmas Card With Stamps from Oak House Studio.

Today's card  for Oak House Studio features 2 sets of stamp collections, the Big Christmas Collection and the 2 inch Journal Circles set.  For the background I used a mixture of regal claret, citrus orange and totally turquoise from the ink in a bottle range  and sprayed onto a glossy card.  The background was made on a A4 size card and I cut out this square as the colours worked well with the Sea Blue ink pad .  

To start with the construction of the card I stamped the dotted frame circle onto my background square.  Then I stamped the solid snowflake bauble from the big Christmas Collection onto white card stock with the sea blue ink.  I cut this out using a 1 inch circle punch (you can just cut around the bauble if you don't have a punch).  I then glued this to a flattened bottle cap, let it dry and then added the clear bubble dome on top.  I then applied this to the center of the stamped frame - if you score the back of the bottle cap with a scalpel it will help to adhere the cap to the background.  the corners are then stamped using the open snowflake bauble in the 4 corners of the background.  I've mounted the whole thing onto a coordinating paper from my stash of scraps.  To balance the whole card I added the words "Let it Snow" from the Snowflake collection.

Have a great day
