Hahaaa! In case that is not a familiar term to you, here in our neck of the woods we sometimes call a potato a "spud". Thus the title of my post. While the carved potato tree stamp was still fairly fresh I took it and stamped out a whole bunch of them on a white sheet of card stock and will use them for future Christmas card designs. I enjoyed doing that card yesterday and also today when I made another design with it.
This time I fussy cut around the tree leaving a slight white border. I decorated it with some red rhinestones and then popped it up on a red die cut circle using a Cheery Lynn Designs die. That was added to a Spellbinder scalloped circle cut from green card stock.
I found some scraps and used them to make a background strip using the pattern paper from Gina K. Designs and some red card stock. I blinged it up with some red rhinestones. Then I popped the layered tree design to the card.
I finished the card by adding the sentiment which is from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Stamp Set 507 Christmas Holly. I just love that sentiment.
Since I have another card using a veggie I will enter this one too into the Mod Squad Blog Challenge for this week in which we were to make a Christmas card using a veggie if we wanted to. It is not required but if you do you get an extra entry. So why not? It is a challenge for sure then.
Another lovely Sunday here. I hope you enjoyed the day as well.

Verna, who would have thought to carve a stamp from a potato. I have carved stamps but not from vegetables. You did a fantastic job and already have a couple of cards for the holidays. WAY TO GO!
Have a fun, creative week.
