Black Tie Christmas- Card #2 :-)
I wanted to create one more card using last week’s DD79 Black Tie Challenge colors from the Dynamic Duos and decided to include the dessert option of Christmas again :-)
The winners have been posted for this challenge, and if you have not had a chance to visit yet, I hope you will check them out- wonderful examples of how two colors can be interpreted!!
Also, the new weekly DD80 “Triple Threat” Challenge will be starting at 12:00 noon EST today –looking forward to seeing you in the gallery :-)
To create this card:
In My Digital Studio (MDS), open a blank 8.5 x 11 custom page and insert the ornament image from Festive Flurries along with the sentiment from More Merry Messages onto Whisper White cardstock.
*** Hint **** Whenever printing images in MDS for card making, fill up your page before printing with other images that you may use in the future.
Cut the ornament out with the 1 ¾” Circle Punch and mount onto another circle cut from Basic Black cardstock (cut the black circle in half vertically). Create the top of the ornament using a scrap piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and mount a few scraps of Basic Black on the sides- adhere this behind the circle ornament.
Use the AquaPainter™ with Platinum Shimmer Paint to cover the top of the ornament and parts of the snowflake. Add the Basic Black cardstock strip in the center and punch out a ½” Circle to put in the center. Add the Frosted Finishes Embellisment to the center of the small circle using Mini Glue Dots and wrap the retired Silver Cord around the top of the ornament – place a Rhinestone in the center to hold the cord in place.
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and Silver Foil Paper. Add a few scraps of Basic Black cardstock to the back of the embossed Smoky Slate layer, adhere the Silver Foil strip in the middle and the Whisper White border (from the Big Shot™ and the Finishing Touches Edgelits™) at the bottom. Mount onto the DSP panel, trim to size, adhere to a Whisper White cardstock layer and again onto a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock.
Add the ornament to the center of the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and adhere the tails of the Silver Cord behind the card front. Mount the entire panel onto the Basic Black card base.
Trim the sentiment and add banner points using the 1” Square Punch. Mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and trim to match the banner. Mount to the card front over the Silver Cord using Stampin’ Dimensionals™ to finish off the card.
