The 12 Days of a Clean and Simple Christmas-Stamp Simply Style-Day Eleven



It's day eleven of The 12 Days of a Clean and Simply Christmas--Stamp Simply Style!


Points of interest:
1.   Grab your nested dies for a CAS design...it automatically looks like "more" when it really is "less"!
2.   When you make a monochromatic print design, line up the layers to match, then add dimensional tape between the layers. This makes for a clean and concise look.
3.   Use a light colored Prismacolor pencil or sponge ink onto the edges of the dark paper layers for additional interest.

And...a pretty bow always makes for a delightful finish!

All supplies used for today's CAS design are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Check out the rest of the CAS designs today:

Hope you return for the final day...day 12...of The 12 Days of a Clean and Simply Christmas--Stamp Simply Style!

It is definitely delightful!! I LOVE the gingham ribbon - a favorite of mine - checks and plaid. Thanks for the inspiration.
