SOTM take two!

So you've had a sneak peak of CHF's new Stamp of the Month (see yesterday's post if you missed it). Now how about a completely different take on the same stamp. Sometimes perspective--like the use of a stamp, is what it is all about. When I buy stamps I like to know that they are good for more than one look. Now granted changing the sentiment and the colour of the image DOES do the trick but I also like to know how to really change the look. Today's card was exactly that. It was actually my favourite personal take on the stamp.

Note: You'll notice I used my scor-pal to edge the card. Again, it adds some texture and appeal and it so simple to do!



Gotta love the glimmer of the faux snow on those branches.
