Hey Stampers! I have been competing in a contest with my demos only group. The contest is to post something every day. We started last Saturday and I have posted a new project for the contest and then have been posting it the next day on here. So this is like a bonus post because I technically have already posted today. But what the heck it is Christmas. This project I also submitted for a challenge in my group. The challenge was to make a Christmas card and use non-traditional colors. The card I shared with you yesterday used non-traditional colors as well. The tree image and the sentiment are from the Snow Swirled set. (Have I mentioned how much trouble I will be in if this set gets retired.). I used Bermuda Bay card stock and ink along with Rich Razzleberry card stock and ink. The accessories I used were the Scallop Edge punch and the Scalloped Oval. The ribbon I used is actually retired and I think the color is Taken with Teal or Tempting Turquoise but when I put it against the Bermuda Bay I was happy to see how well it matched with the ink color and card stock. My card base is your standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I cut the Rich Razzleberry so that just the tiniest bit shows between the layers of Bermuda Bay. I wanted just a little extra pop of color. I stamped the tree image three times and got my layered look by masking the center tree and then stamping the outer trees. I stamped the trees on whisper white and adhered it to a piece of Bermuda Bay. On the right side of that layer I used the Scallop Edge punch so that just a little more of the Razzleberry shows. I attached the ribbon to close to the bottom of the trees. Then I stamped my greeting in Rich Razzleberry onto the Bermuda Bay card stock and punched it out with the Scalloped oval punch. Then I used dimensionals to attach my oval to the ribbon. I did stamp the other sentiment from the Snow Swirled set on the inside of the card in Rich Razzleberry but I couldn't get a clear picture of it. Maybe Santa will bring me a new camera for Christmas. Okay so I hope you enjoy this project and thanks for stopping by.
Come and create something with me,
