From Our Home to Yours
Today I am sharing another card using the new December Stamp of the Month, stamp set from the December release at along with the previously released stamp sets, Texture Tiles 4, Christmas Silhouettes and Christmas Pine.
Also, don’t forget, the December Stamp of the Month, is free with your net purchase of $75 (US) for the month of December! Plus any order over $75 (US) receives free shipping and handling!
I used the Just Add Ink #436 Sketch Challenge for the layout and am also participating with the Simon Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge, the Simon Says Work It Wednesday“Ho-Ho Holiday” Challenge, the Alphabet “R is for Reindeer” Challenge and the Time Out #123 “Black & White + 1 Colour” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the / yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the reindeer image from Christmas Silhouettes withine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing has cooled, fussy-cut the image (FYI- I used my new Brother Scan ‘n Cut- love this machine!).
2). Repeat the same process on another piece of white cardstock as in step 1 using the large image from . Once the embossing has cooled, use distress inks to watercolor the image and fussy-cut around the edge.
3). Create the buffalo plaid background panel with the image from Texture Tiles 4 using black soot ink onto white cardstock, die cut the panel with a stitched strip die and mount onto black cardstock, trimming close to the edge. Use a bit larger stitched strip die to die cut a piece of designer paper for the second vertical panel, mount onto black cardstock and trim close to the edge.
4). Trim another piece of white cardstock to approx.. 4” x 5 ¼”, emboss with an embossing folder, mount onto a piece of black cardstock and trim close to the edge. Mount the entire panel onto a white card base. Add the two vertical panels with dimensional foam and mount the image onto the top of the panels with dimensional foam as well.
5). Loop silver cord onto the wood panel and add the fussy-cut reindeer image using dimensional foam.
6). De-static a piece of black cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment “From Our Home to Yours” from the Christmas Pine stamp set using Versamark™ ink, apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Trim the sentiment and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
