Contempo Christmas

Good afternoon, what a miserable first day of October!

Well, seeing as it's pouring with rain outside, I don't feel so bad showing you a *cough* Christmas card that I've made recently using a new stamp set from the newly released Idea Book & Catalogue!!!

The stamp set is called Contempo Christmas which is a set of four stamps and co-ordinates lovely with a matching wheel and ornament punch which saves cutting out the bauble by hand!

Here is the card I made using the traditional Christmas colours: Old Olive, Real Red and Whisper White.
