It’s so nice to be back at the Alphabet Challenge! This challenge is all about “S is for Silver.” We are obviously looking for silver to be a dominant color on your project. For my card, I used one of my favorites and one I haven’t used in quite a while, Poinsettia Petals. These flowers are synonymous with Christmas, aren’t they?
Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Alphabet Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along before the deadline of December 30th!
My secrets to making this project
- Firstly, this card started with thick white cardstock what was cut to 9″ x 6-1/4.” Then, it was scored at 4-1/2.”
- After that was done, I cut the first designer paper to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/4″, then I cut a second one to the same dimensions. Once that was done, I measured down 1″ from the top on the left side and 1″ up from the bottom on the right side. Then, I cut it with my Trimmer and layered it onto top .
- The Cherry Cobbler ribbon from my stash was placed on top of the seam line and taped to the back of the panel.
Now, the FUN Part!
- Secondly, I stamped the poinsettia flowers with Smoky Slate ink, then went over most of the lines with my Wink of Stella silver marker. Then, they were all cut out with their coordinating dies and layered together, using dimensionals to separate the layers.
- After that, I cut silver foil with the leaves dies and placed them under the poinsettia with mini dimensionals.
- Next, I I stamped the sentiment with Evening Evergreen ink and cut it with the Hippo & Friends die. Then, I popped it up with dimensionals.
- Finally, I backed the panel onto Evening Evergreen cardstock, adhered it to the card base. Lastly, I used some pretty dots for the all-necessary bling.
