Triple Treat Embedded Christmas

Hi Stampers! 

Here it is again, another long week has passed and I have not had a chance to stamp a card for a challenge- I am having withdrawal symptoms :-)!  

I decided to take a break from making my bulk Christmas cards to create a quick easy Clean and Simple card using the bright fun colors for this week’s CQC115 ColourQ Challenge along with the FM15 sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches. 

To create this card:

Ink the Triple Treat Flower with Real Red Classic ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock (stamp a total of four flowers in Real Red).  Clean the stamp and stamp the flower again onto Whisper White using Regal Rose Classic Ink.  After cleaning the stamp one more time, use a Glorious Green Stampin’ Write marker to ink up the center of the Triple Treat Flower stamp and stamp onto a scrap piece of Whisper White. 

Use the Fancy Flower punch to punch out all of the Triple Treat flowers in Real Red.  Punch out the five petal area  of the Regal Rose flower using the 5-Petal Flower Punch and punch out the Glorious Green center using the ½” Circle Punch.

Cut one of the Real Red flowers in half and adhere the halves at an angle onto Whisper White cardstock.  Adhere two of the remaining flowers onto the Whisper White cardstock as well (this creates the angled layer for the sketch).  Use the Big Shot™ with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions ™ Embossing Folder to embed the flowers into the background. 

Assemble the final Real Red flower with the Regal Rose petal section and Glorious Green center onto a piece of Glorious Green (embossed with the Finial Press Textured Impressions ™ Embossing Folder).  Add the Green Galore leaves (created with the 5-Petal Flower punch and a score line up the center of each leaf).  Mount this panel onto Real Red cardstock, add the 5/8” Real Red Satin Ribbon, Sentiment Label and Rhinestone to finish off the card.

 Stamp Sets:  Triple Treat Flower, Come to Bethlehem

Ink: Real Red, Regal Rose, Glorious Green Stampin’ Write marker

Cardstock: Whisper White, Real Red, Glorious Green, Green Galore

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Square Lattice and Finial PressTextured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, Punches- Fancy Flower, 5-Petal Flower, Decorative Label, ½” Circle,  Rhinestone, 5/8” Real Red Satin Ribbon

Thanks again for stopping by! As we finalize our preparations for Christmas, may we never forget the "Real Reason for the Season"- Christ the Lord!

I hope all of you have a wonderful week and have fun stamping!
