TCC83 All Ye Faithful

Hi Friends!!

It’s time for the new #83 {Parisian Postale} Challenge at The Card Concept! I was inspired by the kraft, red, white and black colors as well as the script for a Clean and Layered/Mixed Media card! 

This will be our final challenge for 2017 and we will be back with more challenges on January 10, 2018!

I decided to use the new STAMPlorations™ All Ye Faithful Typografia Christmas stamp for my focal image tag and paired it with a retired Stampin’ Up! (SU!) background stamp.

I am also linking this card to the Dies R Us #86 “Christmas Carols” Challenge ("O Come All Ye Faithful" is one of my favorite Christmas hymns) along with the STAMPlorations “Never -Ending Anything Goes” Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to check out the rest of the wonderful Design Team cards at The Card Concept as well as the entries at the other challenge sites- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Using a silicone craft mat, tap Tim Holtz® Festive Berries Distress Ink onto the mat, lightly spritz with water and lay a piece of kraft cardstock into the ink. Dry the panel with a heat tool.

2). With the retired background stamp on the table with the stamp side facing up, ink the stamp with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink and press at random points with your fingers the kraft panel from step #1 into the ink. Lift up and dry with the Heat Tool.  Press a piece of red cardstock (I had this in my stash already die cut with a stitched die) into the script background stamp as well. Die cut the background kraft panel with a stitched rectangle die and mount onto another panel of black cardstock (die cut with a larger stitched rectangle die) and adhere the entire panel onto the white card base.

3). Layer the red script die cut horizontal panel onto a black horizontal panel (again, already in my stash die cut and ready to go).  Wrap the baker’s twine repeatedly over the layer and mount onto the card front.

4). Ink the All Ye Faithful Typografia Christmas stamp with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto another piece of kraft cardstock and heat set with the heat tool.  Die cut with a pierced tag die, lightly press into a bit of the Festive Berries Distress Ink and use a Faber-Castell® Ploychromos™ White Pencil to color the background of the “All Ye Faithful” part of the image as well as the little leaves.

5). Mount the tag onto black cardstock and trim close to the edge.  Add the twine bow and adhere the entire tag onto the card front with dimensional foam.

6). Apply Nuvo™ Festive Berries Crystal Drops to the berries on the sprigs to finish off the card.
