O little town ...
I had fun with this challenge and have two cards for you:
Stamps: Stampin' Up! - December Wonder, Holiday Home
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; SU - Elegant Eggplant
Dies: Spellbinders - Petit Ovals Scalloped Lg (S4-139) #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Elegant Eggplant; Kanban - Christmas Mirri Card, Old Town Stacked Print
This card was so easy to make, it almost feels like a cheat! I cut the gorgeous mirri card slightly smaller than the card and adhered it flat to the card. I used dimensional gel to layer up the Old Town images, keeping it reasonably flat and then layered the finished piece on a die cut purple oval. On the inside I cut a mat layer of purple card and stamped a simple greeting on the white panel.
My second card is totally different - more contemporary and it's a folding card:
Stamps: Stampin' Up! - December Wonder, Holiday Home, Mingle All the Way
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Real Red; Kanban -Christmas Town Tags; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella; SU Marker - Real Red
Again, this one was reasonably quick to make. The tag images are all joined, so I simply lined the inside with plain white card on which I stamped some Christmas images and a fun greeting. I added a faux stitched border using a red marker and this defines the inside of each panel.
In the photos above you can see the card opened flat to show the inside as well as see the whole of the front of the card. I made a belly band to go round the card to keep it closed. I cut a strip of red card, stamped a sentiment and added some stars and snowflakes, along with a bit of sparkle.
