Pennant Card - from a Christmas Stamp Set

The other day I was working on a Christmas card using the Evergreen stamp set (D1315).  I was staring at the trees (triangles) and I realized that a few of them look just like the pennants in Party Pennants (C1429, my favorite stamp set in this Idea Book).

Evergreen (D1315)

Did you know that you can turn your stamps over (stick the front of the stamp on the block) and stamp on the flat (back) side of the stamp?  I wanted to use the triangle shape on this Christmas tree, but I didn't want to have the paisleys on on my stamped image.

I used the colors Pear, Dutch Blue, Sunflower and Holiday Red.  I stamped the same flag in different colors, so I had to clean in between each color.  The little triangle box made a cute holder for the card/pennants.

This card is all-purpose.  You can send it to anyone...just change the letters.  :)

Supplies Used:
Evergreen (D1315)
Extreme Caps (D1250)
Colonial White Waxy Flax
Pear Stamp Pad
Dutch Blue Stamp Pad
Sunflower Stamp Pad
Holiday Red Stamp Pad
Outdoor Denim Stamp Pad (for letters)
