Mocha Morning Christmas- Three in One!



Hi Stampers!  

I created this card using this week’s CCMC175 Color Challenge at Create with Connieand Mary along with the HSSTC92 Over the Top Theme Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments and the FMS10 Sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. If you have the time to visit- all of these sites have wonderful samples from their Design Teams as well as the entries from all of the participants.





To create this card:

Cut the Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper into three sections and layer onto Cherry Cobbler.   

Layer the 3/8” Cherry Cobbler Quilted Satin Ribbon to cover up the sections.

Stamp the sentiment in Versamark™ ink onto More Mustard cardstock and heat emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder.  Adhere the DSP panel onto the More Mustard layer and onto a Basic Black cardstock front.  Spray with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint spray. 

Repeatedly stamp the tree image from Snow Swirled onto More Mustard cardstock using Versamark™ ink (as a background stamp rotating the tree stamp to cover the paper) and heat emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder.  Once the embossing powder cools, punch out two ornaments with the Ornament Punch. 

Cut a length of 3/8” Cherry Cobbler Quilted Satin Ribbon and carefully trim the ribbon between the quilting (you can get up to four to five sections of ribbon from one piece).  Tie the thin piece of ribbon into a bow and adhere to the top of the ornament with a Mini Glue Dot.

Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, mount the ornament to the card front and add the Rhinestones to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets: Snow Swirls, Christmas Greetings

Cardstock: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, Mocha Morning DSP

Ink: Versamark™

Accessories: Heat Gun, Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder, Ornament Punch, Rhinestones, 3/8” Cherry Quilted Satin Ribbon, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint
Thanks again for visiting!  I hope you enjoy this card and have a great week being creative- Christmas will be her before you know it!
