Welcome to our Happy Stampers Blog Hop. I am sharing a card using Wonderful Year from Stampin’ Up! Wonderful Year has two very large sentiments that create quite a statement for your Christmas cards this year.
Here is our color challenge for this week:
I began by inking up the Wishing You a Joyful Christmas stamp from Wonderful Year in Cherry Cobbler ink. Before stamping, I used a baby wipe to clean off the bough and berry image on either side of the sentiment. Then, I used my Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write marker to color them in, huffed all over the ink and stamped onto a square panel of Whisper White card stock. I added two Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shapes where the berries would be. A frame of Emerald Envy card stock was adhered to the sentiiment panel with liquid glue.
I cut a narrow panel from Presents & Pinecones DSP (part of the buy 3 get 1 free sale going on right now), and glued it to a panel of Emerald Envy card stock (striped) from the 2016-2018 In color Designer Series Paper Stacks. That panel was then glued to a little larger panel of Emerald Envy card stock before popping it onto the Mint Macaron card stock base with dimensionals. Using the small bow from the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies, I die cut three bows in Cherry Cobbler. Those three are glued together with tiny dots of liquid glue.
I cut a length of Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine and pulled one end through the Holly Christmas Trinket, wrapped it around the loops of the bow, tied a knot and trimmed off the ends. A couple of glue dots were added to the back to secure it to the front of the sentiment panel, then the panel added to the front of the card with dimensionals.
The inside Whisper White panel is stamped with another of the sentiments from Wonderful Year in Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy inks. I used another panel of the Emerald Envy In Colors DSP as a frame for the sentiment panel, and again glued them with liquid glue.
Card stock cuts in inches and products used will be at the end of my post.
