DD82 CAS Christmas Dove
This week’s DD82 Dynamic Duos “Bright and Cheery” Challengeuses the 2012-2013 In-Colors Primrose Petals and Gumball Green.
I hope you will find the time to visit the rest of the fabulous Design Team projects- they did a wonderful job with this color challenge!!
I decided to create another Christmas card and pulled out the retired set, Gifts of Christmas and use a quick marker technique - this one is very easy and fun! :-)
To create this card:
Using the Stampin’ Write markers in Primrose Petals and Gumball Green, color the flowers and leaves directly on the stamp. Color the dove with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker and re-moisten the stamp by “huffing” onto the image and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Deco Label Framelits™ to cut out the dove image along with another piece the same size using Primrose Petals cardstock.
Trim the Primrose Petals die cut layer in half and layer behind the focal image along portions to show beyond the Whisper White cardstock.
Emboss a piece of Vellum using the Big Shot™ with the Pretty Print Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and layer onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Add the Primrose Petals layer onto the Whisper White card base. Adhere the vellum layer and add the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Create the sentiment using My Digital Studio (MDS) from Endless Wishes- print onto Whisper White cardstock, punch the banners using the Hexagon Punch and add the Primrose Petals cardstock layer.
Add the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and finish the card off with Pearls.
