Christmas with a difference

November 3, 2017

I created this card after seeing a card sketch layout on Pinterest which actually gives you four orientations for the same sketch, so you may see more of this layout in the future.   Since I am also addicted to my Stampin’ Blends at the moment I had to use them as well.  I embossed Old Olive card using the Holly Embossing Folder and attached it to the left hand side of Whisper White card.  I attached a piece of the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series paper to the right hand side of the Whisper White card.  I attached a strip of Gold Glimmer Paper across the middle of the panel before attaching to scored and folded Crumb Cake card.  I had a piece of Whisper White card on my desk which was cut using the second largest of the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies which was perfect for this card.  I stamped the wine bottle and the wine glass from the Half Full stamp set onto the label using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I did mask the bottle before stamping the first glass and then I masked the glass before stamping the second one.  I also used my stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure they were straight on my label.  I coloured the images using the Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake and Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends.  I also stamped the holly image from the Half Full stamp set onto the top left hand corner of the label using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the holly images using the  dark Cherry Cobbler and the dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  The label is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card I stamped “Merry Christmas” from the Half Full stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I also stamped two of the wine glasses and one of the holly images using the same ink.  The images are coloured using both of the Daffodil Delight and the dark Cherry Cobbler and the dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

Well, what do you think?   It’s a bit quirky but I like it.  I know quite a few people who will get it as well.  My husband doesn’t think it is Christmassy at all!  Oh well, you can’t please everybody, can you?  Even if you are on the fence about this card, I know you will all agree with me that the Stampin’ Blends are sensational.  Have you purchased yours yet?

Bye for now,

Kris
