PP67 Holiday Greetings- with or without?

Hi Stampers!   

Just in the "nick of time"!  I wanted to create a card for this week’s PaperPlayers PP67 Color Challenge and hopefully will have time to load before the deadline:-)

I decided to use a new set, Creative Elements and thought that this card could be either for Christmas or Thanksgiving- also at first I did not have the pearls and then added them, which do you prefer?

To create this card:

Use the Embossing Buddy® to de-static a piece of More Mustard cardstock and stamp the floral image with Versamark®ink and then again into Bravo Burgundy and heat emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder. 

Use the Big Shot™ and emboss a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with the Snowburst Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, a small piece of More Mustard with the Square Lattice EF  and a piece of Very Vanilla with the Oval Decorative Frames EF.

Stamp the sentiment with Bravo Burgundy in the oval frame and the scroll image with Cajun Craze (stamp off first).  Use a Sponge Dauber with Bravo Burgundy to sponge around the edges and bring out some of the texture.

Better without Pearls or with?
Spray the Very Vanilla embossed background as well as the oval frame with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint spray (also, I used the reverse side of the Snowburst EF and it looks a bit different- must say, I like it:-)).

Layer the panels, add the 5/8” Satin Ribbon (from my stash) and pearls to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets:  Creative Elements, Sincere Salutations

 Ink: Versmark™, Bravo Burgundy, Cajun Craze

Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Cajun Craze Designer Series Paper

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Snowburst, Finial Press and Oval Decorative FrameTextured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Pearls, 5/8” Satin Ribbon (from my stash)

Thanks again for stopping by!   I hope all of you have a great weekend- try to find some time to “play”!
