Christmas In July- A Christmas Rose for a Color and Sketch Challenge :-)
Hi Again Stampers!
This card was created for the Our Daily Bread Designs ODBDSLC245 Color Challenge along with the Tis' The Season TTS46 Sketch Challenge and is one of the designs for my CCC15 Christmas Card Challenge at Splitcoaststampers (a personal commitment to create cards each month- see gallery here).
Again, if you have not visited the challenge sites yet, I hope you will find time to do so- terrific Design Team designs and as well as their galleries!!
To create this card:
Stamp the floral image from the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Christmas Rose set and the sentiment from Blessed Christmas (ODBD) using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Color the rose image using Stampin’ Write markers- Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette, Primrose Petals along with Mossy Meadow and create shadows with Sahara Sand. Add a few white highlights with the White Gel Pen.
Use the Big Shot™ along with the MFT Stitched Square Die to cut out the image and mount onto a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock.
Use a 1” Square Punch to create the photo corners from Primrose Petals and Mossy Meadow cardstock and adhere to the corners.
Create the banner points on the sentiment using the Hexagon Punch and mount onto a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock (using the punch to create the banner as well).
Mount a piece of designer paper from the ODBD Heart and Soul Collection to a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock.
Add the Primrose Petals embossed panel and the strip of Mossy Meadow cardstock along the angled seam (the Primrose Petals piece was in my scraps and had been previously embossed with the retired Fancy Fan Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder).
Add the focal image and sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and adhere Pearls to the corners of the focal image.
Adhere the Silver Cord loops behind the focal image and sentiment using Glue Dots™ to finish off the card.
