I've managed to get a little time in my craft room to make another Christmas card. Yes, I know I said that I'd made them all and that I was done for the year, but apparently I can't count!!!
Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Delightful Decorations, Sassy Salutations
Inks: SU - Crushed Curry, Gumball Green
Dies: Spellbinders - Pinked Circles Lg (S4-172) #4
Accessories: SU Card - Real Red, Gumball Green; Cuttlebug EF - Christmas Countdown; Perfect Pearls; SU Punch - Christmas Decoration (discontinued)
I used a few challenges in the making of this card:
- Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - CCIC#10 - Christmas Countdown
- CAS - Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#54
- Deconstructed Sketch - DS#129
I have an embossing folder entitled Christmas Countdown so I decided to use it to emboss the red panel. Once embossed I rubbed the green pad over the top to bring up the numbers. I cut a panel of green card and adhered it to the card. I die cut a circle which I embossed using the same folder and I finished the front of the card with a simple and bold Christmas ornament. For the inside I cut a mat layer of red and on the white panel I stamped a couple more ornaments and a bold sentiment.
That's all for today - I'm going to make good use of the time indoors and get that big pile of ironing done. It never seems to get any smaller!!! See you tomorrow. Be safe.
