My card base is Soft Suede card stock. A piece of Always Artichoke card stock's edges were distressed using the distressing tool from the Cutter Kit and then sponged with Soft Suede ink. It was then added to the card front. I took a piece of the retired Deck the Halls designer paper and spritzed it with Soft Suede ink using the Color Spritzer Tool and the Soft Suede marker. This is one technique that I need to work on A LOT. The edges were sponged with Soft Suede ink. I rounded the bottom corners and matted the designer paper with a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock whose bottom corners were also rounded. Three Cherry Cobbler brads were added in one corner and the layer was adhered to the card front. Another piece of the designer paper was matted with Cherry Cobbler and adhered to the front. The sentiment from the Word Play stamp set was stamped on the same designer paper in Always Artichoke ink and punched out with the 1-3/4" Circle punch. I matted it with a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock that I cut out with the Circle Scissors Plus. I made a little bow using Cherry Cobbler ribbon and added it to the center of the ornament in the sentiment. A Cherry Cobbler brad was added and the image layer was popped up on the front using dimensionals. I know you're probably thinking "what is she doing?" but I go wherever my muse takes me. Plus, I have one card ready for the end of the year. Have a wonderful day.
