Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week. My project today features the Christmas to Remember Stamp Set, the Christmas Season Stamp Set and the Seasonal Labels Dies. I also used the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper. We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week. Here is my card:
The Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper features beautifully hand painted images of leaves, branches, berries and pinecones. All are in traditional, natural colors. I chose a design that could stand alone on the card front and used the coordinating cardstock, ink, ribbon and embellishments to pull it together.
Use Evening Evergreen ink to stamp the mistletoe branch image from the Christmas Season stamp set along the right side of the Evening Evergreen card front. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the panel of Painted Christmas DSP to a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock. Then adhere the layer to the left side of the card front as shown using Liquid Glue.
Stamp the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock with Real Red ink. Crop with a label die from the Seasonal Labels Dies. To make the mat for the sentiment, flip the die over on a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock and use a pencil to trace around the outside edge. Trim with your Paper Snips and adhere the stamped label to the coordinating mat.
Wrap a length of Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon around the card front and secure the ends to the card front with Mini Glue Dots. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment label to the card front, covering the ends of the ribbon. Add a bow to the left side of the label, adhered with Mini Glue Dots. Complete with a few sparkly Real Red Wonderful Gems.
Use Real Red ink to stamp the inside sentiment on a panel of Basic White card stock. The branch in the lower left is Evening Evergreen ink stamped off twice before stamping on the inside panel. Adhere to a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock before adhering to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.
