Joanne Brown is one of my amazing Candy Hearts team members. She made today’s card using three stamp sets (Gallery Grunge, Lovely as a Tree, and Farmhouse Christmas) and1 the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. I love how she combined all these different products in a way that makes you think they’re all from the same set!

Here’s what she made:

Here’s what (I think) she did:

Cut and scored with her Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Basic Black CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Basic Gray CS cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″

Stamped with the Gallery Grunge stamp set:

  • wood background image in Basic Gray ink (stamped off once) onto the Whisper White CS layer

Stamped with the Lovely as a Tree stamp set:

  • tree in Basic Gray ink over the wood background image

Stamped with the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set:

  • sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
