DD79 Black Tie Christmas

Hi Stampers! 

This week’s Dynamic Duos DD79 Challenge is “Black Tie” week with the dessert option of Christmas.  

I decided to use My Digital Studio (MDS) to create the images and traditional card making techniques for a “hybrid” card   :-)

To create this card:

Using MDS, use the brush stamp set from Day of Gratitude and More Merry Messages- print out onto Whisper White cardstock.

Carefully cut out the Day of Gratitude image and color the center of the image with an AquaPainter™ and Platinum Shimmer Paint.

Use the Big Shot™ to cut out a 3 ½” Circle from a piece of Basic Black cardstock (I was able to use a scrap piece from a previous project that already had this opening cut out)- adhere this to a piece of Whisper White cardstock and again to a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock.   

Punch out a 2 ½” Circle from Smoky Slate and another one from Basic Black cardstock.  Cut the Basic Black circle in half and adhere behind the Smoky Slate circle (allowing a bit to show on the sides by spreading out the circle).  Mount this circle into the center of the 3 ½” Circle created in the above step.

Add the 5/8” Basic Black triple ribbon bow and add the Day of Gratitude using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock.   Adhere this to a piece of Basic Black cardstock, add the lace along with another strip of 5/8” Basic Black Satin ribbon and adhere the entire panel to the Whisper White card base.

Use the 1 3/8” Circle punch to curve the edges of the sentiment, mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and curve the edges on the Basic Black layer using the 1 3/8” Circle Punch, adhere to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add the Rhinestone to the center of the medallion and the Frosted Finishes embellishment to the center of the bow. 

Stamp Sets:  Day of Gratitude, More Merry Messages (both MDS)

Ink: Printer Ink- Black

Paper: Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Whisper White

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Northern Flurry Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Circles Collection Framelits™, Frosted Finishes Embellishment, Rhinestones, Punches- 2 ½” Circle, 1 3/8” Circle; 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon (retired), AquaPainter™, Platinum Shimmer Paint (retired), Lace (from my stash)

Thanks again for stopping by!  Again, I hope all of you will have a chance to visit us at The Dynamic Duos and play along this week!!

Just stunning, Julie. Love the luscious bow, of course! Great use of MDS- I must get on that bandwagon. Shimmer is a great touch on this card, too.

Wow--this is a masterpiece. Very impressed with your "hybrid" creation. All the matting, and the ribbon and lace do a lovely job of framing that gorgeous floral image.
