Can someone please tell me where these weeks are going? Holy Moly…they are just flying by. I feel like I need 36 hours in a day to do what I’d like to do.
Time for another sketch challenge from the Stamping 411 Team…I hope you’ll pop on over there to see what the other Operators are up to.
Here is the sketch:
….and my interpretation using the Bells and Boughs Set.
I just had to use Shimmery White Card Stock for this card. It just screamed for it. I wanted to add the Silver Shimmer Paper for the edge so wanted the whole thing to be sparkly…’tis the Season for Sparkly, right?
The base of the card is cut to 5 1/4 x 10 1/2 and folded in half. The next layer is actually the next Shimmer White mat that is cut to 4 7/8 x 4 7/8. It is scored using the Simply Scored Tool from Stampin’ Up! at 1/2 inch all the way around. I added a Rhinestone gem to the cross section of each corner. I cheated here a little as I cut thin strips of the Silver Shimmer Paper and glued to the back of the scored mat. No sense in using a whole big piece of it when you can piece it right?
My next mat is of Cherry Cobbler and measures 3 3/8x 3 3/8 and the image mat, again in Shimmery White is cut to 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 and stamped in Versamark….and sprinkled with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set. Lovely on it’s own….I wanted a slight pop of color so brought out my Sherry Cobble and Old Olive Markers and colored in. My final touch was a double bow done with the fabulous Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding. Hope you like it.
