How to create a Christmas Card with the non-festive stamp set Waterfront, by Stampin' Up!

Get into the festive spirit with the Waterfront Stamp Set
It's that time of year again! And unfortunately it has crept up on us a bit here in the Crafty Hippy household. We have just moved out of our old house, and have been living out of a bag pretty much since July, so Christmas has escaped us a bit. It's high time we got organised. 

To get into the spirit I thought I'd make a card using a non-festive stamp set, which was actually easier than I thought. I decided I'd use the trees from Waterfront, and used a seasonal sentiment from another set (Winter Woods) to create a Christmas card.

I'm so glad I did this, it made me totally rethink this stamp set, something I have got out of the habit of doing. Often, there are so many uses for each stamp set, you just have to be creative and think outside the box a little.

If you watch the Video you'll see that I made a bit of a clumsy mistake with the sentiment, so I propped it up on another piece of cardstock.

You could change the framing colour cardstock, or perhaps keep this with a monochromatic colour scheme, so many options. If you would like to recreate this card exactly you will need the following Stampin' Supplies:

I really enjoyed making this card and it did make me feel slightly more Christmassy! I suppose I had better get organised, and make a list at the very least...
