One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Make It Monday #39: Multi-stamp Background Building

Every Monday morning it is a new Make It Monday on the Papertrey blog showcased by Nichole Heady, one of the owners of the company!  And today, Nichole showed in the video how to use your stamps to make your own background paper...So I pulled out "Peaceful Poinsettia" since I am still in the Christmas card making mode!!  Everything used was from that stamp set, except the die cut is from Half and Half.  This was very fun to make and it ties it all together which I love...I think I will start looking for more stamps to do backgrounds for Christmas cards!!
