WMSC #23 & Color Cue #10


Hello, dear readers!  I have a quick card to share tonight for two challenges:  the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and the Color Cue.

Both of these are going in my file to use again!  I used a new stamp that I had the good fortune to win in a giveaway over at the CASE Study challenge blog recently, from Stampin' Up's Northern Hearts.  It was offered up as a prize by the wonderful Carole Kisch.  Thanks so much, Carole!

The sentiment is from WPlus9's Poinsettia Patterns.  I rearranged the sentiment and added the row of x's below it (they are actually part of a frame).  I can't wait to play more with this background building set!

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy, white), Bazzill (kraft)
Patterned paper:  Papertrey Ink (Dotty Biscotti)
Stamps:  Stampin' Up! (Northern Hearts), WPlus9 (Poinsettia Patterns)
Ink:  ColorBox (Cranberry)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Limitless Layers dies), Sizzix (embossing folder)
Accessories:  Papertrey Ink (Plum Pudding ribbon), Stampendous (clear embossing powder)

Here are the steps to make this card:
1.  Make card from red cardstock.  Cut a slightly smaller mat from kraft cardstock and adhere to base.
2.  Cut a slightly smaller panel of white cardstock; dry emboss with snowflakes.  Cut a triangular piece of dotted paper and adhere to bottom corner.  Wrap with ribbon; adhere to card.
3.  Stamp snowflake on white cardstock, heat emboss and cut out.  Die cut circle and scalloped circle; layer with foam adhesive and attach to card.
4.  Stamp sentiment on cardstock strip; notch one end and adhere to card.

Thanks so much for stopping by tonight!  Have a fantastic Friday!

I'm loving the embossed snowflakes :) And I never would have thought that purple would suit a Christmas theme, but it does! It's great being able to use more than the red/green color combo. Great card!
