An Easy Christmas Quilt
This evening I had a chance to stamp and decided to create a card using this week’s DD74 Dynamic Duos Colors (love this two color challenge site and their Design Team is amazing- hope you can find the time to visit) and another card design for my Christmas cards and the CCC13 Splitcoaststampers Christmas Card Challenge.
Using the Embossing Buddy®, de-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamp the Festive Flurry image using Versamark™ ink. Apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.
Ink the background stamp En Francais using Cajun Craze Classic Ink and stamp off before stamping over the snowflake. Gently wipe off the ink from the image using a paper Towel.
With a Sponge Dauber apply Island Indigo Classic Ink over the entire image and again, gently wipe off the ink with a paper towel.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Circles Collection Framelits™ to cut out the embossed image and cut another circle the same size from Cajun Craze cardstock. Cut the Cajun Craze circle in half horizontally to layer behind the embossed image and adhere to a Tea Lace Paper Doily.
Emboss a small piece of Cajun Craze Designer Series Paper (DSP) using the Big Shot™ with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and also emboss a 4 ¼” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Lightly sand the Cajun Craze embossed DSP with the Sanding Block and adhere to a piece of Island Indigo cardstock- mount onto the Whisper White embossed panel on an angle.
Add the Festive Flurry snowflake focal image and add the 5/8” Triple Satin Ribbon bow. Mount the entire panel onto an Island Indigo card base and add the Pearl to the center to finish off the card.
I decided to leave the sentiment off the card since I did not want to cover up the snowflake :-)
