Mama Elephant Highlight: Merry Greetings

Hi there! We're back again with a Mama Elephant highlight today on Merry Greetings. This is a must-have sentiment set. With a perfect combination of beautiful handwriting and typography, you can wish everyone joy this holiday season in anyway you wish!

"Joy To You and Me" Card: I created a layered card with kraft paper. I first used the Creative Cuts Embellished Tag to make a window so the "joy to you and me" sentiment from Merry Greetings would peek colorfully underneath. I decorated the the sentiment with the cute decorative images from Winter Wonderland and the gorgeous colors from Mama Elephant Creative Color inks. I also added gold polka dot washi tape on the edge of the card fold. Before adhering the kraft cardstock to the card, I added deers and a star image from the Winter Wonderland in hazel to give it a subtle brown on cardstock look so that the decorated sentiment peeking through would be the main focal point.

"Mistletoe" Card: I also wanted to show how this perfect holiday sentiment set can also be used to make an even simpler card. All you need is one of the sentiment stamps, accompanying mistletoe suspended from the dotted line image from Polar Pals, and a few clear sequins.

Don't forget to check out the Mama Elephant blog to see what the rest of the design team created with this holiday must-have stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by!
