Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Good Morning Everyone!

Here’s something I don’t do often and that’s make a card with little stamping on it. I had my Holiday Lounge Designer Series Paper out and this is what I came up with. I feel badly that the glitter doesn’t show in the photo in the Sahara Sand Ornaments. It was difficult to photograph. I think you get the picture though, right? How RETRO is this??? I think my Brother or Dad had a Shirt of Pajamas like this! Ha!

Sketch 112 Holiday Lounge DSP

For this card I started with a card base in Ruby Red that was cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2”

I think cut a piece of Sahara Sand that is 2 3/8” x 5 i/2” and cut the DSP to 2 1/4” x 5 1/2” and mounted that on the Sahara Sand. I then layered a Sahara Sand for the base 2 3/4” x 3 1/4” and the Ruby Red to 2 5/8” x 3 1/8” and the white to 2 1/2” x 3 “. I crimped all three pieces & stacked it on top of the DSP with Dimensionals. I then proceeded to cut out a few ornaments and this is what I got. A little silver corking for hangers and the Many Merry Messages Set and here you go. The only thing I stamped was the Merry Christmas Saying and I cut that in half and mounted on the card.

Here is the Stamping 411 sketch if you’d like to play along. We’d love to have you!
