O Holy Night- Another Christmas in August Card
I wanted to create another quick Christmas card that I could easily multiply for one of my designs for the August CCC13 Splitcoaststampers Christmas Card Challenge (I had committed to 20-25 cards per month and figured it would be easier to make 5-6 of each design versus all one design since I tend to become easily bored :-))
Once I saw the terrific PPA169 sketch at this week’s Pals Paper Arts site , I knew it would work well for the new O Holy Night stamp (again, if you have not visited their site yet, I encourage you to do so- love their Design Team samples and they always have a large gallery of entries- so much inspiration!! )
To create this card:
Using the Embossing Buddy®, de-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamp the Christmas scene from Come to Bethlehem using Versamark™ ink. Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Silver Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.
Repeat the same steps using a piece of Vellum and the O Holy Night stamp (O Holy Night is one of my favorite hymns), embossing the image with Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder.
Once the images are cooled, trim and adhere to Basic Black cardstock. Add the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon bow to the top of the vertical panel.
Mount a piece of Winter Frost DSP onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and adhere to the Whisper White card base and attach the vertical and horizontal panels per the sketch (using Stampin’ Dimensionals® for the vertical panel).
Add the Rhinestones to finish off the card.
