Count How Many Times I Say the Word “Holiday”

Non-holiday stamps can very easy be used for holiday themed cards, often by a color scheme or an appropriate sentiment.  Today’s post features the same non-holiday stamp used for two Christmas cards.

Oct & Nov Cards (3)

Here, this flower is stamped on and paired with papers from the Basic Grey Little Black Dress collection.  Not very Christmassy, until paired with an appropriate sentiment and just a small touch of holly.

This flower isn’t really designed to be poinsettia, but hey – make your own rules, it’s a card not a driving exam!  Paired with a red bow and sentiment, it doesn’t get more Christmas than that.

Hope you enjoyed, do you have any non-holiday stamps that you like to use for your favorite holiday?  Christmas, Valentine’s Day, 4th of July – it’s all fair game!
