Perfectly Plaid for the Beginning Stamper

Seriously, where has the time gone?  Between details for our daughters wedding which is in 2-1/2 weeks and prepping for a big demonstrator event this coming weekend, I can’t even keep track of the days!  I did however, take a little time last night to create a series of Christmas cards using the Perfectly Plaid stamp set.  The three cards I created are a card for the beginning stamper, the casual stamper and the avid stamper.

Today’s card was designed with the beginning stamper in mind.  Since a beginning stamper would have much in terms of supplies, my goal was to create a simple card that used only a few products.  Using a pre-made card base, like the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, means a beginning stamper doesn’t need a bunch of different papers.  I kept the stamping to just one set, the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and used just two ink pads; Cherry Cobbler for the sentiment and Shaded Spruce for the tree.  Even beginning stampers want their cards to look special, so I wrapped the Cherry Cobbler Diagonal Strip Ribbon around the card front and tied it in a bow. 

Tomorrow I’ll share a card I created for the Casual Stamper in mind, but if you’re ready to order the supplies used on today’s card, just click the photos below to go right to my online store.
