 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

Works of Art


 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is:

Wise Men
                                               



The directions for my first card this month came from one of the Technique Junkies Newsletter CDs.  It's called a double display card.  As you may be aware, I do love those fun folds.  There was lots of scoring and cutting on this.  Don't you just love that little scarecrow!


My second card is a regular A2 card.  That turkey looks pretty dapper in his perky hat!



The mini set this month is called Wise Men.  I made a card using this set for today.  There is no stamping on the front of the card -- just an ornament shape cut out revealing the Wise Men strategically stamped on the inside.  The star is a punched element.


Here is the inside.


Be sure to check out the blogs of the rest of the design team.  Remember, if you comment on their blogs, you may win one of this month's stamp sets.

I love all four of your wonderful cards. The papers you used on the first one with that intricate fold are so fun. What a great border punch on the second one. Love how you "framed" the wisemen in the ornament on the third, too.
