It’s the Best Time of the Year

A Merry Hello Two-Step hostess stamp and set brings holiday cheer to this quick and easy fun card using only three colors, one sheet of patterned Designer Series Paper and white cardstock. Two-Step stamp sets use coordinating stamps to layer on ink to make a complete image. For this card, the stockings are one stamp and the stocking patterns are another. Images can be stamped in the same color, stamped off to create a lighter version of the same color using two different colors as seen on this card. So cute and versatile!
