5/15/22 April Site-Wide Winner at The Outlawz Challenges!
Happy Hump Day everybody! I hope you’re having a great week so far! I’m several days late posting this Christmas card I created for The Outlawz April Freebie/Progressive Challenge but here I am finally! I finished it several days before I found the time to take photos and then it was three more days until I found the time to post. Dang it… there just aren’t enough hours in a day to get everything done that needs to be done! Our sponsor this month is MMedel Illustrations and we were gifted the most adorable Christmas Angel image to play with for this challenge! You may remember the ‘disappearing nine patch card’ that I discovered a while back in a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter HERE. It’s such a cool technique that I’ve used it once again for this Christmas card! ;)
I printed the digital image four times on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, fussy cut them all, and adhered them together for a little dimension. I colored the top one with alcohol markers and ran a black Posco paint pen around the edge for a more finished look. I die cut the sentiment with a My Favorite Things Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips die and layered it on three additional fishtail sentiment strip die cuts for some dimension there as well.
I created the patchwork piece using the My Favorite Things Stitched Square STAX Die-namics and various patterned paper scraps from the American Crafts Christmas Print 6×6 Cardstock Pad. I cut a top-folding square card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis Green cardstock, adhered the patchwork piece to it and then adhered the panel to the card base.
I die cut a stitched mini scallop rectangle from red foil in the Christmas Print cardstock pad and adhered it to the card front. I adhered the image and sentiment with double-sided adhesive foam circles, and added a tiny pearl necklace to the angel.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of patterned paper and foil from the Christmas Print cardstock pad. I stamped a sentiment from the STAMPlorations Joy stamp set in Memento Cottage Ivy ink and layered the pan on CutCardStock Basis Green cardstock.
And one more peek… really loving this ‘disappearing nine patch card’ technique, especially with the Christmas patterned paper and adorable image!
