May the Spirit of Christmas Fill Your Heart
I had a chance to create a few cards this weekend and this card was created using the Wplus9 Get Sketchy! #4 Sketch Challenge along with the My FavoriteThings #33 Color Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge site galleries yet, again, I would encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the Wplus9 Design Studio Pretty Patches: Tree stamp using Always Artichoke Classic Ink and the trunk with Smoky Slate Classic Ink stamping together onto Whisper White cardstock.
Ink the heart stamp with Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink and stamp onto the center of the tree image.
Use the Big Shot™ with the coordinating die to cut out the tree image and set aside.
Cut the wavy panel from Always Artichoke cardstock using the Lawn Fawn (LF) Stitched Hillside Borders Die.
De-static the stitched wavy panel as well as a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®.
Ink the various snowflakes from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) Winter Blessings using Versamark™ ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Once the embossing powder has cooled, ink the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Wash background stamp with Smoky Slate Classic Ink, spritz with water, blot the inked background lightly with a paper towel, stamp over the snowflakes on the Whisper White embossed panel and lightly wipe off the ink from the snowflakes with a paper towel.
Mount the wavy stitched embossed panel to the embossed Whisper White panel and trim, mount onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Always Artichoke card base.
Stamp the sentiment from the Wplus9 Pretty Patches: Tree set using Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the My Favorite Things (MFT) Stitched Rectangle STAX Die to cut out the sentiment and mount onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, trimming to frame the stitched rectangle layer.
Add the looped Silver Cord to the card front wrapping a few strands around the sentiment layer and mount the tree with the sentiment to the card front using dimensional foam.
Stamp and die cut another heart using Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink, mount onto the sentiment panel and add the Rhinestones to the hearts as well as the snowflakes to finish off the card.
