CAS Contempo Christmas :-)

Hi Again Stampers!!

I wanted to create another Clean and Simple (CAS) Christmas card and decided to use the STS#8 Seize The Sketch STS8 Challenge and the fun colors from this week's CC452 Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers :-)

Seize The Sketch is is a new challenge site for me and they have a wonderful Design Team along with all of the inspirational entries- hope you will have a chance to check them out as well as the Splitcoaststampers gallery!

To create this card:

Stamp the Christmas tree image from the retired set, Contempo Christmas using the Silver Encore!™ Ultimate Metallic ink onto Island Indigo cardstock.  Cut out with the 2 ½” Circle Punch and layer onto two other circles from the same punch- one from Whisper White and the other from Island Indigo cardstock.

Layer a piece of the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto Whisper White cardstock and again onto Island Indigo cardstock.  Adhere to the Pool Party card base.

Stamp the sentiment from the Contempo Christmas set using Island Indigo Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and layer onto an Island Indigo cardstock strip.

Adhere the Christmas tree image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.  Add the 5/8” Whisper White Organza Ribbon bow along with the Frosted Finishes Embellishment. 

Stamp Sets: Contempo Christmas (retired)

Ink: Island Indigo, Silver Encore!™ Metallic

Paper: Whisper White, Island Indigo, Winter Frost DSP

Accessories: 5/8” Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Frosted Finishes Embellishments

Thanks again for visiting- have a wonderful day!
