HYCCT1510 With Loving Wishes

Hi Again Friends!!

I had Blackberry Bliss still on my desk from a few cards that I created this week and since the HYCCT Challenges are to support breast cancer patients, I thought this would be a good non-traditional color choice for my tag Christmas card :-)  I personally love purple so I hope you are not too tired of that color yet...

I am also going to link this to the Splitcoaststampers' CCC15 Christmas Card Challenge for the September theme of snowflakes :-)

I hope you have a chance to visit the above galleries and possibly time to join in on the fun!!

To create this card:

Stamp the sentiment and holly from Embellished Ornaments using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto a piece of watercolor paper and the holly only onto a piece of white cardstock (I should have used watercolor paper for this step but for some reason pulled out a miscellaneous white cardstock instead- oops! :-)).

Using Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Stains (I used Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves), tap a bit of each color onto a craft mat, spritz with water and lay the  piece of watercolor paper into ink, spritz more water onto the panel and allow the inks to merge.

Repeat the above process on the regular white cardstock panel (being careful not to saturate this panel with too much water or the paper will “pill”) and use the Heat Tool to dry both panels.

Use the Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Markers to color the holly images and spritz the large Gorgeous Grunge splatter stamp with water to stamp over the panel, dry again with the Heat Tool.

Use the Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker to add highlights to the berries on both panels.

Cut the sentiment image into a 2” strip and use the ScallopTag Topper Punch to create the tag, round the ends with the Envelope Punch Board (also punching a piece of Whisper White cardstock in the same manner) and adhere the Whisper White “tag” behind the stamped holly tag.

Mount the die cut snowflakes behind the tag and set the tag aside for the moment.
Use the Simply Scored™ Scoring Tool to score along the top of the background panel, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount again onto the Blackberry Bliss card base.

Add the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Front view- curvature of the camera lens drives me crazy :-) !
Adhere the 3/8” Blackberry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon double bow to the top of the tag along with the die cut snowflake to the lower part of the tag.

Add the Silver Button along with the Large Silver Rhinestone to the center of the large snowflake to finish off the card.
