DD79 Black Tie Christmas
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 :-)
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.
