I love this stamp set! It lends itself well to clean and simple cards, which is a style I lean towards most of the time. Right now you can get Contempo Christmas, along with the Jolly Holidays Designer Paper, in a bundle for 20% off! What a great deal. I used the Scallop Rectangle Clearlit to make the Real Red mat for the stamped tree. It isn't quite big enough to fit the tree, so I die cut one and one half scallop rectangles, and pieced them together behind the Very Vanilla piece.
