WSC Merry Christmas




TGIF Peeps!!!!

Today's card is made with Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge.

I still had the Season of Joy Stamp Set out on my craft table from the card I made earlier this week so I grabbed it to use with this sketch. I used shimmer white and PTI's Night Sky Shimmer cardstock for this card. That blue is sooooo pretty.

I used the snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder for the two white layers. The "ornament" main image panel is made by cutting a circle into some scrap white cardstock. I used some temporary adhesive to attach it to my circle and sponged around the edges with night of navy ink. I then inked up the stamp with more night of navy ink and stamped onto the cardstock. I removed the scrap circle and there you have the "ornament". I added a small square to the top and put some silver string through it. I cut a scallop circle with my nesties and cuttlebug and glued the ornament to that. I pierced the centers of each scallop with my mat pack and piercing tool.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set onto some scrap shimmer white and punched it out with my large oval punch. I matted the sentiment with a piece I punched with my scallop oval punch. The ornament piece and sentiment piece are attached with dimensionals. I added a few silver sticky rhinestones to the ornament and a bow with some white organza ribbon.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
