Holiday Lights - Kitchen Sink Stamps

Last weekend I went hog-wild making a large tub of  holiday lights from the Kitchen Sink Stamps set Christmas Lights 2020 so that I could get serious about creating my Christmas cards for this year. This delightful little set has three different light bulbs and two styles of sockets, as well as a wire stamp which you can use to connect the lights into a string. There are also several tiny one layer light bulbs. What a bargain for $10.50!

For today's Kitchen Sink Stamps sponsored design, I have used the small round bulb and straight socket for the first card and the large bulb and slanted socket for the second! Black cording was used for the wire, framing, and bow. The pine sprigs and sentiments are from Christmas Poinsettia.

For both of these 5 x 7 inch holiday cards, I stamped images from Snowy Pine Trees on a white panel and laid a designer paper oval frame cut from a holiday pad from the Paper Studio over them before adding the sockets and light bulbs. I fussy cut the bulbs and sockets. After gluing them down, I added the black cording and sentiments.

This first card has been entered in the following challenges this week:
