Winter Wishes... Merry Wishes

Here is a super simple card for you today....

This one is all about the special front on the card.  See all the details here.....

We start our card with a Tip Top Taupe card base, but this one measures only 6 1/2 x 5 1/2 (and is scored at 4 1/4 as usual).

Next, we stamped the pine boughs from the Winter Wishes Stamp Set in Tip Top Taupe ink on the front flap of the card.

We also stamped the sled (love this vintage wooden sled, by the way!) in Tip Top Taupe ink and added "Merry Wishes" stamped in Real Red ink.  The sled stamp is found in the Winter Wishes Stamp Set, and the Merry Wishes sentiment can be found in the Oh, What Fun Stamp Set.

Tip Top Taupe Classic Stampin' Pad  138325  $6.50

Real Red Classic Stampin' Pad  126949  $6.50

Oh, What Fun Photopolymer Stamp Set   140386  $21.00

Finally, we added a couple of pieces of cardstock (in Real Red and Very Vanilla) to the inside of our card - to match the panel on the front of our card.

What a clever idea!!  Thanks so much to Tina Rappe for her inspiration on this card!!
