CAS Ornamental Pine Christmas- Peace on Earth
I had a chance to create a quick Clean and Simple (CAS) card last night using the CAS(E)This Sketch #132 Challenge along with the Stampin' Royalty SR287 "Keep It Simple", the Splitcoaststampers’ CC539 Color Challenge (see details here and gallery here) as well as the CCC15 Christmas Card Challenge (see gallery here).
I hope you will find the time to visit the above sites and check out all of the inspiration from their Design Teams as well as their galleries!
To create this card:
Using an Acrylic Block- place it directly onto the Soft Sky Classic Ink pad (making sure that it is fully covered with ink) and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Color the Ornamental Pine stamp using Stampin’ Write Markers- Early Espresso for the branches and Wild Wasabi for the needles...”huff” onto the stamp to re-moisten the ink and stamp onto the acrylic block panel.
Create shadows using the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker for the branches as well as a bit for the needles.
Stamp the pinecones using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and carefully fussy-cut the images.
Ink the sentiment with Perfect Plum Classic Ink and stamp onto the panel.
Trim the panel and mount onto the Perfect Plum card base.
Add the pinecones using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and the Rhinestones near the sentiment to finish off the card.
