It's been a few weeks since I participated in any of the Christmas card challenges. For that matter, I haven't been working on any cards that much; just being lazy again I guess. For today's card I decided to pair up the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge #58 and the 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown April Color Challenge #16.
The first thing I did was rotate the sketch. The card base is Night of Navy card stock. Bashful Blue card stock was embossed with the Big Shot and the Snow Burst embossing folder and attached to the card. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Delightful Dozen stamp set on Glossy White card stock with VersaMark and a combination of Silver
embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds. It's hard to see in the photo but it gives the card a really festive look. The sentiment was matted with Night of Navy card stock and Night of Navy brads added to one corner. I cut out three banners from Night of Navy card stock using the Big Shot and the Bitty Banners Framelits. I then cut three pieces of Silver Glimmer Paper, flagged one end and attached them to the navy banners. Glue Dots were used to attach them to the back of the sentiment layer. I then attached that to the card with Dimensionals. The ornament from the Tags til Christmas stamp set was heat embossed on Glossy White card stock using VersaMark and the same mix used for the sentiment. It was punched out with the Ornament Punch. I then punched out another ornament from Night of Navy card stock, cut it in half and used it to mat the silver ornament. It was attached to the card with Glue Dots. That's it for this week's Christmas card. Hopefully I'll get back in Christmas mode again. So happy you stopped by today. As always, if you have any questions, please let me know.
