Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #33
I saw a beautiful Christmas card on Nancy Riley's blog this morning, and was inspired to go and make a Christmas card myself.
Like Nancy, I have used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #33:
This is the card I have made:
List of Ingredients (all from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted, stamped images © Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Tree Trimmings and Christmas Classics
Ink: White Stazon
Cardstock: Kraft and Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Ski Slope Designer Series paper, clear acetate, On Board Lots of Letters, crimper, dazzling diamonds, Dress Up Ribbon Originals, dimensionals, mini glue dots, two-way glue pen, sticky strip and SNAIL adhesive.
I did want a bold, large, white Christmas greeting down the left hand side of the card (maybe a rub on, or some thickers or the like), but I couldn't find anything suitable in my stash...so it is now a faint, small, almost transparent Christmas greeting.....SIGH...I'll get over it ;-).
The bauble is stamped on acetate, and is sitting up on offcuts of dimensionals with a heap of Dazzling Diamonds behind it. I originally put so much under there...that it was packed solid and didn't move at all (Derek would have been proud). I had to open up some of the dimensional packing and empty about 3/4 of the glitter out and then re pack the hole. UGH...talk about fiddly!
The card is 6 x 6 inches, and opens from the bottom.
Ciao ciao bloggers! Thanks for dropping by.
