Another Stamping 411 Challenge Card for you today. I hope you will go on over the the Stamping 411 Blog and play along or just go over and see all the fabulous creations.
Here is the sketch for the week…
…and my interpretation……
This card was so simple to make. I have to admit it took me awhile to figure out what set I wanted to use with this sketch, then finally decided on Tree Trimmings. It’s one of my favorite sets and I love the richness of embossed Ornaments.
The card base is Very Vanilla (I know shocking) cute to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half. I did use my corner rounder punch to soften the corners. The next layer/mat is cute to 3 3/4 x 5 and run through the Big Shot. I usedmy most favorite embossing folder in the whole world "Vintage Wallpaper. As you may notice the edges are embossed with Pewter Embossing Powder. I did that by simply dipping the edge into My Versamark Pad Gently and adding some Pewter Embossing Powder and heat setting. I did round the corners on this piece as well before doing that.
My next mat is Cherry Cobbler and is cut to 2 1/8 x 4 1/4-corners rounder as well. The next mat is cut to 2 x 4 1/8 and run through the Big Shot using my next fav Embossing Folder the Stripped Embossing Folder. To that I stamped the smallest of ornament images three times with Versamark and sprinkled Pewter Embossing Powder over and heat set. Then I cut them out. I know, I know cutting out is not fun but cutting out embossed images is so much easier…it’s like you have a guide. Honest! I added the ornaments to the stripped piece with Dimensionals. I did add a bit of linen thread for the loops at the top. I did emboss the edges of that piece as well.
Now for the assembly….pretty straight forward….added the Vintage Wallpaper piece straight to the Card Base, but added the Double Loop Bow to it before adhering. The stripped piece was taped to the Cherry Cobbler and then popped up with Dimensionals. Then added the Ornaments and saying. The saying was embossed as well and is from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set. I markered (is that word?) the edge of that piece with a Cherry Cobble Marker. That’s it!
I hope you enjoyed my little share today and will visit again soon.
Have a great weekend!
