Holiday Floral Background Card

Hi, there! It's Lynnea! Today I'm using the LDRS Creative Holiday Floral 6x8 Stamps in a fun way - to create a background! I love the floral tree, but I though the pattern would be pretty as a corner accent! 
I started by lining up the greenery outline image that would create the tree from the Holiday Floral 6x8 Stamps diagonally on the bottom left corner of my card. I stamped it with Fandango Hybrid Ink and then rotated my panel so that I could stamp the same image in the same place on the opposite side of my card. I used Soft Kisses Hybrid Ink for the second layer, Swimming Hole Hybrid Ink for the flower base layer, and Dark Wash Jeans Hybrid Ink for the centers. 
I trimmed my panel down to 3 3/4" x 5" and cut a layer of white cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4", but I didn't like the plain white panel. I used my Soft Kisses Hybrid Ink Pad and swiped the ink pad directly onto the cardstock to create a layer that perfectly matches my stamping. I did the same thing onto a piece of scrap cardstock and cut the Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas Dies from the colored cardstock and the shadow from white. 
I added my layers together with foam tape and popped the sentiment into the center of my card. And that's it! I hope this encourages you to look at your stamps and see what 'out of the box' ways you can use them!
