Feb13 Christmas- Card #3- Clean and Simple "Hybrid"
Hi again, Stampers!!
Here is my third
design for the February 2013 Splitcoaststampers CCC13 Christmas Card Challenge-
I will complete the entire set later this evening but wanted to post before February was officially over but I had a bit of an issue with my computer so I am a few minutes late :-)
As I mentioned in
a previous post, this challenge is basically a commitment to yourself to
complete your Christmas cards early (so you can mail them in November). Last year, I did not have enough cards to
mail, so I am re-committing myself in order to be able to start to mail in late
November this year and I will need over 200 cards!
This is another Clean
and Simple (CAS) card and although I have the stamp sets, I decided to utilize
My Digital Studio (MDS) to print the images and create a “hybrid” card.
To create this card:
Using MDS, insert the
stamp brush images and arrange the layout to fit onto one page and print onto a
piece of 8.5” x 11” Whisper White cardstock.
Use Stampin’ Write Markers in Baja Breeze,
Pretty In Pink and Lucky Limeade to color in the image and take an Aqua Painter
to soften the colors.
Use the Big Shot™
with the Oval Framelits™ to cut out the images of the little girl and cut
another oval the same size out of Basic Gray cardstock to layer behind the
image (cut this oval in half to just peek out on the sides).

Also with the Big
Shot™ and the Holiday Frame Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, emboss a
piece of Whisper White cardstock for the background. Use the Aqua Painter with a little bit of
Frost White Shimmer Paint to brush over the raised image of the embossing.
Finished set of cards- yea!
Adhere the focal
image along with the sentiment (also layered onto Basic Gray and using the 1”
Square Punch to create the banner points) and layer the entire panel onto Basic
Gray cardstock before mounting onto the Whisper White card base.
Another quick and easy card- I promise I will finish the other five cards :-)
