Inspired by Awesomely Artistic stamp set

I have been asked to showcase the Awesomely Artistic stamp set at a special in-home class. In the process of coming up with some designs for cards and also incorporating the Envelope Punch Board.
I came up with some lovely Christmas cards that I had produced for my last class. As I said in a previous post, not everyone has a lot of Christmas images. They may have the words but nothing to go with them, so I decided to create Christmas cards out of regular stamp images.

By placing a scrap piece of paper circle as a mask and stamping around the edge you get a wreath.

Pop a Christmas greeting inside, add a bow and there you have a truly lovely card.

These type of cards I have made before, it is the Spotlight technique. Stamp the main image in Basic Black and then choose a colour for the spotlight, I chose Watermelon Wonder for the square spotlight and Real Red for the circle. I mounted the spotlight piece on coordinating card making it just a smidgen bigger.

I decided to show a square spotlight for those people that have not got circle punches. I like the circle spotlight better but if you don't have the tools, you don't have to miss out, just cut out a square. I think it works well, don't you?
