Dasher In The Mix

The Dasher stamp is such a simple yet elegant design that can be mixed with so many different layouts!  When I first saw it I always thought that it would look great with a message stamped on top of him.  A busy background layout helps pull the entire layout together.

We did this card at my last Christmas Stamp-A-Stack class and it was a big hit!  A couple of tips if you try to make this card:

  • Use the embossed paper in the upper right hand corner as your guide and place all of the additional papers on the card after this one.  When you emboss a small piece of paper like this is makes it slightly smaller than your original cut.
  • Always cut your patterned papers slightly larger than the area you are trying to cover.  If your piece of paper is slightly short it is much more noticable with the patterns.  You can always trim any excess that goes over the edge.
  • Cover any seams in the paper that don’t quite match up with a simple band of ribbon.  Almost every card that I made didn’t line up exactly (maybe it’s me) – but a quick and simple fix is just adding the ribbon on top!
