Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Challenge

October 6, 2017

Here I am with another challenge card and I must say this one at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration gave me a chance to step outside my comfort zone.  I love the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper and with it as the starting point, I created my mostly Black and White Christmas card.  I embossed Basic Black card using the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I cut a Silver Metallic Foil Doily in half and attached it to the top left hand corner of the embossed card.  I cut a strip of the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series paper across the card front, covering the cut edge of the doily.  I stamped the greeting from the Merry Little Labels stamp set onto Whisper White card using Archival Black ink.  I used an Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker to add a little colour to the centre of the leaves.  I punched a Real Red circle using the Holly Berry Builder Punch and attached it over the stamped holly berries.  I punched the top of the card using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  The stamped tag is attached to a slightly larger Old Olive tag and then the card front using dimensionals.  I tied a knot in a length of Silver 1/8″ Ribbon and attached it to the tag.

I decided that to decorate the inside of the card I would play on the words in the greeting and stamped the row of wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set.  In keeping with the black and white I merely stamped in Archival Black ink and didn’t add any colour.

I have a few friends who will appreciate this card, have you?

Bye for now,

    Simple but very elegant Kris, especially with the touch of gold popping out behind the DSP. TFS
