52CCT - Pick a Previous ....

... Morning! It's time for our new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 52CCT17-16 and, as we've got five Saturdays this month, Patrick has selected the bonus challenge as PICK A PREVIOUS THEME. You can click on the tab at the top of our page at 52CCT to check out previous themes. Here's my card:

Stamps: Uniko - Jingle Bells
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Rich Razzleberry, Mossy Meadow; Versafine - Onyx Black; Brilliance - Galaxy Gold
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Mossy Meadow; Wink of Stella - Dark Green


This week I've made a really CAS one layer card. The layout is based on the sketch from this week's CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#171, although I've changed the direction of the curves! I'm also submitting this to Addicted to Stamps and More! - ATSM#191 where Anything Goes. I've actually used a couple of previous themes on this card - Bells from January 2015 and Holly from August 2013.

This lovely holly flourish is a multi-step stamp. I stamped the leaves and ribbon in green and then, using my MISTI, stamped the poinsettia in several shades of red. I added the simple and bold greeting from the same set. I added a touch of sparkle by colouring the ribbons with a dark green Wink of Stella brush. On the inside I cut a mat layer of green card and on the white panel I stamped the Christmas bell.
