Christmas Greeings- A CAS Sketch and Color Combo

Hi Stampers!!

I wanted to create another Christmas card design for my CCC13 Splitcoaststampers' commitment and decided to try using this week’s Create with Connie and Mary CCMC272 Colors (love the colors but ithey are a bit bright together- definitely a challenge for me :-)) along with the CAS Colours andSketches #46 Sketch Challenge

Again, I hope you have the chance to visit each site- great inspiration from both Design Teams and other entrants!

To create this card:

Stamp the tree image from Special Season using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink onto Whisper White and trim to size. 

Using So Saffron  and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Write markers, color a few of the bulbs and garland.         
Cut the Designer Series Paper on a diagonal per the sketch and layer onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock ( (I used a few pieces of retired DSP-  International Bazaar and Summer Smooches))

  Layer again onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and add the Bermuda Bay diagonal strip to hide the seam.  

Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the entire panel and mount onto the Rich Razzleberry card base.

Stamp the sentiment using Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and trim to size.

Add the tree image and sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.  Adhere the Rhinestones to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Special Season

Ink: Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, Stampin’ Write Markers- Rich Razzleberry and So Saffron

Paper: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry , Designer Series Paper- retired International Bazaar and Summer Smooches

Accessories: Big Shot™, retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Rhinestones

Not sure if I will create the monthly CCC13 commitment of five to six of this color combo- if you have the time, let me know what you think…too bright or too retro?  Not sure if I am "sold" on it- lol!! 

Thanks again for stopping by- it means so much to me!! Have a great Sunday- God Bless!
