Hey everybody! Well, how’s the weather where you are? Is it warming up any at all? It’s still chilly here but the bitter cold is definitely behind us. Our new challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #49 – Anything Christmas Goes! I created a pretty bi-level card using two My Favorite Things dies sets and some Echo Park paper.
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and cut the bottom portion off the front flap with a My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop Basic Edges die. I applied two strips of Eyelet Outlet red and white dotted washi tape along the angled flap and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Versatile Christmas stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I created a 3-D holly embellishment using the My Favorite Things Holly Berries dies which is the first time I’ve used this set. I employed the swiped ink technique with Catherine Pooler Grass Skirt and Rockin’ Red inks on Solar White cardstock and die cut several sets of holly leaves and berries. The finishing touch was adding several Eyelet Outlet black pearls.
I stamped the inside sentiment, also from the Stampin’ Up Versatile Christmas stamp set, in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added a strip of Echo Park Christmas floral paper across the bottom so it’s visible beneath the front flap and adhered another holly die cut.
