Ornamental Pine #2- Joy for Two Challenges :-)
Here is the second card I created using the Ornamental Pine set from the 2014 Holiday Mini catalog.
This card was created for the Creative Challenge Club #17 Sketch Challenge along with another Christmas card for the CCC14 Christmas Card Challenge atSplitcoaststampers.
As always, if you have not already visited the challenge sites, I hope you will find the time to do so- there are so many wonderful examples from the Design Teams and the galleries!
Using the large branch stamp from Ornamental Pine, ink the image using Garden Green Classic Ink. Wipe the branch portion off using a baby wipe and color the branch with the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Circle Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image along with another circle from Early Espresso cardstock.
Carefully cut along the branch to allow an opening for the Silver Cord (retired) used on the ornament.
Ink the sentiment from Endless Wishes using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and stamp onto the circle under the branches.
Stamp the ornaments using Blackberry Bliss and Cajun Craze Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Carefully cut out (“fussy-cut”) each ornament and wrap the retired Silver Cord around the top of the ornaments.
Adhere the Cajun Craze ornament directly onto the pine branch image and insert the silver cord into the opening cut around the branch.
Mount the Early Espresso cardstock circle behind the pine branch circle.
Mount a piece of Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper (DSP) to a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Add the paper lace (created using the Big Shot™ along with the Large Scallop Edgelit™ and embossed with the Delicate Designs Lace Framelit™) and top with the 3/8’ Blackberry Bliss triple ribbon bow.
Mount the Blackberry Bliss ornament image onto the pine branch circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals® , tuck the silver cord behind the circle and add the circle to the card front.
Trim the edge of the circle on the card front per the sketch and mount the entire panel onto the Early Espresso card base.
Add a few Pearls to the upper left hand corner to finish off the card.
