JUN14VSNL Joyful Christmas Collage
Here is my final card for the Splitcoaststampers’ VirtualStamping Night- Summer Vacation (VSN)..this card is for the JUN14VSNL Christmasin July Challenge along with the Jingle Belles Challenge: Red and Green andChristmas All Over.
This card was created using My Digital Studio (MDS) images along with traditional card making techniques and our new Stampin’ Blendabilities
I hope you will have time to check out the both challenge sites for so much inspiration!!
To create this card:
Open a blank document in My Digital Studio (MDS), position the Christmas Collage
Insert the sentiment from Bells and Boughs , re-size to fit the opening at the top of the collage.
Insert the bells from Bells and Boughs on a different part of the page and print out the page onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Color the elements using the Stampin’ Blendabilities- Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Collections.
Create shadows using the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker and use a brayer with Crumb Cake Classic Ink to “age” the Whisper White paper.
“Fussy-cut” the bells and holly and attach to the card front covering the “25” in the circle using Stampin' Dimensionals:-)
Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and add to a piece of Brushed Gold cardstock, trim and mount onto the Basic Black card base to finish off the card.
