Not A Christmas Birthday - Stampin' Up! Christmas Season

   So the title of this one might be kind of confusing but I used a Christmas stamp set to make today's card.  I wanted to use some greenery stamps and I do have Forever Fern but it was already all packed up ready to go for a class so I didn't want to dig it out and risk forgetting it or something.  So I searched through my stamps for something else that had some leaves and greenery that I could use.  Boom! Christmas Season stamp set worked perfectly for what I had in mind!

  I'm going to be sharing this one over at three challenges (it might be a record for me!  2 is usually my limit!): Seize the Birthday which has make a birthday card with Green & White and over at Just Add Ink they have a lovely inspiration photo using greenery and soft green colors on a wreath.  The layout comes from Global Design Project.  I think this card works well for all three!  Thanks for the inspiration to those challenges!

  This one is quite straightforward in the design so I won't do a deep dive into how I made it but I did emboss the sentiment in black which looks really sharp against the white and green.  I also used light Granny Apple Green blends marker to color the Elegant Faceted gems.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
