Another Card for Christmas in July!

Hi Stampers! 
I decided to create another Christmas card in July and I was in the middle of creating this one when I spilled my diet soda all over the newly stamped and cut out images!   
 With heat gun in hand, I was able to salvage the card and decided to use the Stamping 411 SSC210 Sketch along with the CC329 Suede Melon Crumb Splitcoast Color Challenge.  I could use this as my May card for the CCC11 Christmas Card Challenge but since this one had some tedious paper piercing, I believe I will have to modify it to create multiples:-)
To create this card:

Use the brayer to apply Soft Suede onto the smooth side of the Vintage Wallpaper EF and emboss a piece of Soft Suede with the Big Shot.  Lightly spray with Champagne Shimmer Mist Paint and mount onto Melon Mambo.  

Stamp the poinsettia image from Bells and Boughs with Basic Black onto Crumb Cake.  Create a mask with a sticky note and stamp the image again overlapping the flowers.  Color the needles with the Soft Suede marker and the petals of the poinsettia with Melon Mambo.  Stamp two other images with Basic Black onto Melon Mambo cardstock and carefully cut around the floral images. Sponge the edges of the Crumb Cake with Soft Suede and use the Color Spritzer Tool with the Soft Suede marker to “antique” the background (and cover up the soda mishap :-)).

Assemble the panel, attach the sentiment/ribbon and add the pearls to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets:  Bells and Boughs
Ink:  Basic Black, Soft Suede, SU! Markers- Soft Suede, Melon Mambo
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Soft Suede
Accessories:  Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper EF, Decorative XL Label Punch, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint Spray, Sponge Dauber, Color Spritzer Tool, 3/8” Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft) taffeta ribbon, Pearls 

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you have been inspired to start on your Christmas cards (it will be here before you know it:-).  Have a blessed week and have fun stamping!
