CAS Merry Christmas

Hi Stampers!!

This Clean and Simple (CAS) card was created using the CAS Colours and Sketches #91Challenge along with the Hand Stamped Sentiments HSSC194 Color Challenge.

I hope you will have a chance to visit both sites to check out the fabulous Design Team samples as well as their galleries!

To create this card:

Ink the tree image from White Christmas using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp two images onto Whisper White cardstock.  On one of the images, also stamp the Merry Christmas banner in the upper left hand corner per the sketch and the other, add the polar bear image.

On the image with the banner, use the AquaPainter™ to watercolor Marina Mist Classic Ink over the sky area.  Use Stampin’ Write markers to color the images- Hello Honey for the Christmas banner and Night of Navy for the trees.  Trim the panel and mount onto Night of Navy cardstock.

On the panel with the polar bear, color the trees using the Night of Navy Stampin’ Write marker, add a few shadows with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker as well as the AquaPainter™ with Marina Mist Classic Ink on the snow banks.

Mount the polar bear panel onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock, trim and mount onto a layer of Hello Honey cardstock, trim again and mount onto Night of Navy cardstock. 

Add the Merry Christmas banner strip to the card front per the sketch and stamp a few snowflakes onto the watercolored banner strip as well as the main panel.
Color the snowflakes with the Chalk Marker and adhere the entire panel to the Whisper White card base to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: White Christmas

Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink , Marina Mist Classic Ink; Stampin’ Write markers- Night of Navy, Sahara Sand; Chalk Marker
