This month's stamp set is all about December. It's perfect for December Daily, cards and layouts about the Christmas. But not just that! I created this layout about my family's trip to Maui last December. Totally not holiday related, but the stamps were perfect for it.
I stamped the banner stamps with colored ink (Colorbox Pigment Ink) on smooth white card stock, and the sentiments with Versafine Onyx Black (#2). I cut those out as strips, but later on I changed my mind, and ended up notching the ends. I used pop-up adhesive to attach them to the layout.
To create the title, I printed it on regular printer paper, and used it to pierce the holes onto the photo paper (#3).
I used a single strand of yellow embroidery thread to stitch the title (#4). When I was done, I thought it needed a bit more color. So I trimmed off a little off each side of the photo paper, and added the yellow cardstock to the background.
