Here’s another great card created with simple stamping. Sometimes simple is better! I think we forget how beautiful cards can be with a stamp set, card stock and ink! I hope you like my take on this card!  One note, I have found when using Whisper White Craft ink it looks best stamped on a dark cardstock.  I also use the Stamparatus by Stampin Up® to help get a good image.  For this card I used three different stamp sets by Stampin Up®,  Life is Beautiful, Rustic Retreat and Itty Bitty Christmas.  Please take the time to leave me a comment below and let me know what you think of this card!
