Hello, Stampers! I have looked at each of your submissions for our Anything Goes challenge and am totally blown away at your creative cards. I find it amazing how you all can achieve such beautiful cards week after week. Our last challenge of the year is a holiday one (of course!) and Christmas Bauble stamp set just had to be inked up one more time! I love this beautiful ornament, don’t you?! It came out a couple of years ago and I definitely haven’t used it enough. Because it just had to be colorful ornament, I brought out my alcohol pens and enjoyed a nice, relaxing time coloring while watching my favorite TV show, The Voice. (Anyone else keeping track this season??) So, here is my holiday card:
It’s All in the Details
- This was a fun and easy card to put together and can be done in many color schemes. I chose Cherry Cobbler as my card base then topped it with Whisper White and Old Olive, which was embossed with the Boughs & Berries TIEF (Holiday Catalog).
- Next, I stamped the ornament with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with the alcohol pens until I was happy with the results. Obviously, I enjoy coloring because the results are super rich in color! Once I was satisfied, it was cut out with the Ovals Framelit.
- The sentiment from Holiday & Wishes stamp set was inked in Cherry Cobbler, punched with the Decorative Label punch then Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive card stock.
- The Finishing Touch was spritzing the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon with alcohol, then wadding it into a ball, allowing it to dry, then making it into a beautiful bow. More ribbon was placed under the focal image. A small pearl was placed in the middle of the ornament. The sentiment was popped up with dimensionals and this card was done!
