Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Week Six
Maria just keeps coming up with the best sketches.......... I just realized as I am posting this card that I got the sketch, but totally missed the boat on the challenge.......... we were only supposed to use eyelets as embellishments............OOPS..........well it's too late to pull the ribbon off and I am one more card closer to my goal of 40 cards by Christmas time........... I hope I don't get the "boot" from the group..................then I'll be frantically making cards again by mid December...........
I used the Holy Tryptich Set from Stampin Up! I inked both images with Baroque Burgandy ink and sponged the edges with Creamy Caramel. I used a Vanilla Copic to put a slight amount of shading on the robes and coloured only the faces in with Skin White Copic.
The designer paper is from My Minds Eye signature Christmas Stack. I used SU! Burgandy cardstock as my base colour.
The Ribbon that shouldn't be on the card is Satin Ribbon that retired from SU!!! I think it was in the Christmas Mini last year..........I know it came on sale and I bought a few spools because I love it so much!
I stamped the sentiment from So Many Sayings and embossed in Gold Detail embossing Powder, punched it out with the SU Large Oval Punch and then layered it over the star which I punched from some of the DP!!!
I promise next week to make sure that I follow the challenge rules to the letter!!!!
How are you coming with your Christmas cards???
