PP69 Christmas Wishes
Well, according to our local weather report, it should be “beginning to look a lot like Christmas” tonight and tomorrow as we are anticipating receiving 4” – 8” of snow here on the East Coast! What would be better to celebrate than a Christmas card created for The Paper Player’s PP69 Sketch Challenge?
This week’s sketch was quite a challenge since all of the Design Team samples and other entries seemed to use the sets that I thought of and they were so gorgeous! As I looked at the sketch, I thought, why not flip it on it's side, so that is what I decided to do..:-))
Using Stampin’ Write Markers in More Mustard, Old Olive and Cajun Craze, color the bird image and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. Cut out the banner shape and distress with the Distressing Tool. Layer onto Old Olive, cut the banner and distress as well.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Petals-A-Plenty Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White, add the 5/8” Satin Ribbon double layer (for the panel area in the sketch behind the banner).
Use the same markers to color the floral image from the Gifts of Christmas set as well as the sentiment. Punch out layers for both and adhere to the card. Add the pearls and satin bow to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by! I am looking forward to being snowed in a bit (it will melt fast) and having time to clean house (oh, who am I kidding, stamping comes first!).
Have fun stamping and God Bless!
