Another Christmas Card with Two Challenges in One!

Hi Again Stampers!

I created this card using the Stamping 411 with the Operators Sketch Challenge SSC181 - see all of the wonderful samples and design team creations at http://www.stamping411.blogspot.com/).  I also used the colors in this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge#CCMC128- please see their gorgeous creations at http://www.createwithconieandmary.com/     

To create this card:

Ink the background stamp, Christmas Collage with Night of Navy on River Rock cardstock.  Cut out the portion of the stamp that you wish to highlight and color the images with SU! Watercolor Pencils (do not use water- just dry).

Sponge the edges with Night of Navy and adhere to Night of Navy cardstock.  Layer this onto River Rock and another layer of Night of Navy (use the Scallop Trim Border Punch along the lower edge).  Adhere pearls along the edge. 

Run the Finial Press EF with the Big Shot along the top edge of the River Rock background layer and lightly sponge with Night of Navy.  Spray this layer with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint ( I used the heat gun to speed the drying process).

Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy and layer the 5/8” Rich Razzleberry Satin Ribbon and Victoria Crochet Lace Trim.  Adhere this entire layer onto Night of Navy cardstock and then onto River Rock.

Stamp Sets:  Christmas Collage, Christmas Greetings
Cardstock:  River Rock, Night of Navy
Ink: Night of Navy
Accessories: Big Shot, Finial Press EF, SU! Watercolor Pencils, Sponge Daubers, Scallop Trim Border Punch, 5/8” Rich Razzleberry Satin Ribbon, Pearls

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope all of you have a wonderful week!
