52CCT - Technique ...

Good morning!  Where is this month going?  Time is flying by.  This week our challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown is a technique, Jacqueline would like to see paper piercing on your project.  Here's my card:

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Many Merry Stars, Bright & Beautiful
Inks: SU - Bashful Blue, Concord Crush; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: SU/Sizzix - Stars Framelits #3 and #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Concord Crush; SU Eclectic Paper Piercing Pack


As soon as I saw the technique I knew what stamps I'd be using!  The colours are from Colour Throwdown - CTD#317 a couple of weeks ago.  I die cut a backing star from purple card and used the paper piercing pack to put a border of holes around the edge (which you can just about see in the photo above).  I stamped the beautiful star in pale blue (like the purple, this is a discontinued colour) and cut it out.  I adhered it directly to the purple star.  I stamped some snowflakes and stars all over the card base and finished the front with a sentiment.  The die cut stars were attached with dimensional tape.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of purple card, stamped more snowflakes and stars on the white panel and finished with a bold greeting.  I took the photo in bright sunshine so that the paper piercing would show, but it has given quite harsh shadows!!

Check out the blog to see what the team made using the paper piercing technique.  Don't forget, we're still running the DT Call.  That's all for now.

Really pretty card and the snowflakes are beautiful. The colours work very well but will stand out for Christmas, being a bit different

White and blue are some of my favourite Christmas colours. Love the stamped background for that stand out star! Thanks for your visit.
