Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Week Five
This week, Maria not only had a sketch challenge for us, but a colour challenge as well! The challenge, to use pink, purple and blue on the card! Now that is a colour combo that in my opinion is a little tricky, but it looks like the Design Diva's stepped up to the plate to create some Gorgeous Cards!
I decided to let Pink take the forefront in my card. I seem to have a thing for using Valentine Paper on my Christmas Cards lately! I stamped the main image on and used K&CO Valentine paper for the main panel.
This is Noelle from Stampotique. She is a eccentric and Beautiful Girl, in the mood for some Festive Spirit. I like stamping these images onto light coloured DP and then I just use a little marker to fill in large blank areas or to shade. I embossed some small snowflakes around the main image as well as sponged the edges for added depth. In order to fulfill the sketch requirement, I used Heidi Swapp Clear Snowflakes to the upper and lower corners for a subtle look.
I stamped the sentiment and punched it out, using the SU! word window punch. I then sponged the edges for some depth and mounted it onto th emain image. I used Provocraft Snowflake Border, Martha Stewart Border punch and snowflake Cuttlebug to create the borders under the main image. A touch of Metallic Ribbon completes the look.
