SC622 Peace on Earth
I hope all of you are having a wonderful week so far! It’s time for the new Splitcoaststampers’ SC622Sketch Challenge and I just love the sketch that Cathy designed for us this week!
I decided to create a Mixed Media Christmas card using the brand new Artistic Outpost stamp set, Gloria and also incorporated the Mixed Media Card Challenge#30 Gold and The Paper Players PP324 “Snowflakes” Theme Challenge into the design.
If you have not already visited the above challenge sites yet, I hope you will have a chance to do so- fabulous inspiration from my DT Sisters at the SCS Sketch Gallery as well as the other challenge sites!
To create this card:
Using the ATC Collage stamp from the AO Gloria stamp set, ink with festive berries distress ink and stamp repeatedly onto a piece of red cardstock.
Trim the stamped panel, add with a piece of snowflake patterned paper from the ODBD Snowflake Season Collection 6x6 Paper Pad onto a piece of red cardstock.
Using a stencil brush with vintage photo distress ink, apply a light layer of ink over the white cardstock edges as well as on the ODBD Snowflake Season patterned paper to “antique” the paper.
De-static the background with an embossing static tool, ink the scroll border stamp from the AO Gloria stamp set with embossing powder and stamp along the edges, apply gold embossing powder and heat emboss.
Once the embossing powder has cooled, add the 3/8” red taffeta ribbon to cover the seam and mount onto the white card base.
Ink the angel collage image from the AO Gloria stamp set with festive berry distress ink, stamp onto white cardstock, apply vintage photo distress ink with a stencil brush and mount onto another layer of red cardstock, trim and mount onto white cardstock, trim and mount onto gold foil cardstock.
Add the stamped angel panel to the card front with dimensional foam and add the triple ribbon bow.
Die cut and emboss the snowflakes from gold foil cardstock using the ODBD Snow Crystals Dies, add to the card front (I used hot glue to adhere) and add pearls to the centers.
Stamp the sentiment from the AO Gloria stamp set with archival black ink onto white cardstock, apply vintage photo distress ink, trim and mount onto red and white cardstock, trim and mount onto the gold foil.
Add the sentiment to the card front to finish off the card.
I had fun designing this card and hope I have inspired you to come join us in the SC622 Sketch Challenge! Hugs and have a blessed week, my friends!
