Through the Year November Stamp of the Month Through the Year—November Stamp of the Month is a fab stamp set with Months & cute little icons that you can pair with the months, just perfect to decorate a calendar or a Birthday Card holder or even add to your planner. You can get this stamp set for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75 or more on Close to My Heart Product.

I thought the little icons would make great backgrounds for cards so that is what I am sharing with you today.

The images were stamped in VersaMark™ Ink Pad & embossed with Ranger™ White Super Fine Embossing Powder. I then sponged over the backgrounds with the Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads & spritz with water to get a mottled background effect.

Three Fold Card Christmas Tunes-October Stamp of the Month
On the front of the card I created the globe using the Basic Circle Thin Cuts cut from Gold Foil & stuck Vellum between them. The Base of the snow globe was stamped & embossed with Gold Embossing powder. I added the Tree from the Beary Christmas Scrapbooking Stamp + Thin Cuts and the Koala from Operation Smile™: Punny Pals, his hat is borrowed from the Bear that is in the Beary Christmas Stamp set.

When you open you see what was on the inside of the snow globe a fox holding a string of lights to put on the Christmas Tree. I used a partial die cutting technique for both the fox & the tree.
