Little Claire Designs Christmas Stamp Box Design Team Card

Good Morning!
 
Today I am sharing another DT card I made using the Little Claire Design's Christmas Stamp Box Christmas Candle stamp and Poinsettia Corner Stamp for a second time. I wanted to create a contast between the light of the candle and darkness of night.


I kept this simple using some scraps of paper from my stash for the background and coloured the stamped images with Promarkers. I then fussy cut and finished with a bit of baker's twine and gems.
