Hi! It’s been a hectic week! We had our back deck demolished and replaced, and while it’s beautiful now, and far sturdier than the old one, we’ve had a lot of traffic here.
Anyway, I finally have a chance to sit down and post this week’s cards! Here is the sketch for this week’s challenge by Utah Divas International. Be sure to stop by the UDI blog when you’re done here to see what the rest of our talented design team created!
And here’s my card! It’s hard to tell, but the reindeer and the holly are heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I tried a bunch of different lighting angles, but this is the best I could do so you can still see the designs. It all looks a little brown to me, but it’s gold, really!
Paper/Card Stock: Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper, Champagne Glimmer Paper, Real Red Card Stock, Gumball Green Card Stock, Whisper White Card Stock
Ink: VersaMark, Real Red Marker
Accessories: Real Red 1/4” Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Large Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/8” Circle Punch, 1-1/4” Circle Punch, 1” square punch.
The Candlelight Christmas paper is approximately 2-3/8’ x 5-1/4”. When I realized how closely the design came to matching on all sides, I trimmed one edge down a little to even it out. It was pure luck that it worked out that way, however, I did not plan it.
Used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the Glimmer Paper squares to the Designer Paper layer. The layered circles are popped up with Dimensionals.
I colored the holly berries with a Real Red marker after I embossed the stamped image.
This one was pretty simple. I hope it inspires you to create something to brighten someone’s day today. Happy stamping!
