Rubber Stamp Tapestry - Christmas Card

I love these little Tapestry craft stamps the are perfect for card making, I love the build your own tecknique each different image is an individual little rubber stamp which allows you to build your own image from scratch.
I started on a white tentfold A6 card and drew a faint pencil line around a Nestabilities circle then set to wok starting with the poinsettia's and distress ink then moved on to the holly again in the distrss ink I used gold ink for the bauble and lighter shades of green for the other foliage. I tied an irridscent ribbon into a bow and attatch at the bottom of the wreath shape.
I did the same in stamping the JOY word and againg added the tapestry stamps to the O I cut out the JOY words with the Nestabilitie squares and useing the scalloped die cut out another square in red card stock,
I finished by adding the red top notch twill ribbon and used stickles glitter glue to add some sparkle to the wreath.

I love this card and the stamping technique. I've some similar ones in my store (with parcels) - you've given me an incentive to start using them.

What beautiful colours.

Truly lovely card, Jak. I have these stamps but because stamping is not my main discipline I rarely use them. This is inspiring.
