SIP Challenge 74 - Clean & Simple Christmas Card with IO Stamps
TGIF everyone!!! Man, today took forever to get here. This was a crazy week - filled with more clouds and rain than I ever wanted - and I am shocked I actually got this card done in time. This week's challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper Challenge is Challenge No. 74 - Clean & Simple Christmas -
To make my card I started with a top folding A2 card base of white cardstock. To the front I adhered a piece of decorative paper with a Christmas feel to it. Then I cut a piece of red cardstock, 4" x 5.25", which I adhered to the card front.
Next I cut a piece of white cardstock 3.75" x 5". Using the Round Ornaments 2 set by Impression Obsession, I stamped one of the ornaments with Warm Red Chalk ink by ColorBox (my favorite) and then I embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then stamped the string the ornament hangs on, also in the Warm Red Chalk ink. Next I stamped the Happy Holidays To You phrase, also by Impression Obsession, with Jet Black Archival ink by Ranger Inc. I then adhered this to the red cardstock on the card front.
Next, using the Round Ornament Die by Impression Obsession, I cut the bow out of red cardstock, which I adhered to the top of the ornament. And the last thing I did was to adhere crystals to the center of the flowers and in the center of the bow.
Here is a close up of the card front -
