Christmas Tunes - Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

One of the comments I received during the SOTM Blog Hop (the post immediately prior to this) was asking about what my stamp looks like now that I cut it apart. Since I made my card for the blog hop I cut it again. I left room between the pieces so it is easier for your to see where I made the cuts.

After I made the additional cut I planned to create two cards, but ran out of time to complete both. This is the stamped image where I used two colors:

I am still trying to decide how to finish it. Since time was not on my side, this image will have to wait, but I did get one card finished:

It is hard to see in the photo, but the image is layered on Silver Foil. I really love this stamp so I did not do a lot to embellish the card; I didn't want to take away from the image.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:

I hope this helps envision what I did when cutting my stamp. I admit, I find it nerve-wracking, but I was not able to achieve the results I wanted with masking and I am really happy with how the stamp looks when stamped in two colors.

Thank you for visiting today.
