In Style stamps

Here's a card I made with one of the newer retro stamps from In Style stamps.


I've used Melanie from In Style stamps, isn't she great? I've coloured her with promarkers and copics. All the papers and die cuts are from the Basic Grey Mellow range. To make the tree stand out a bit more I sponge inked it with a brown ink. The tree, bloom and Melanie have been adhered with 3D pads to make them stand out. I put a decorated border made with a Martha Stewart punch in the middle. The sentiment "Happiness" is from a Stampin Up set called Warm Words and the aperture has been punched out with the Stampin Up word window punch.
