Stampin’ Up! Horse & Sleigh Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Horse & Sleigh stamp set and One Horse Open Sleight 6″ x ” DSP (both upcoming Online Exclusive item) to create my project for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and this is what I made for it.

Stampin' Up! Horse & Sleigh Christmas Card

Here is the sketch that were using this week:

I started by adhering a panel of One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP (Online Exclusive item available July 6) to the front of a Pebbled Path card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered another panel of the One Horse Open Sleigh DSP to the card front with Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of One Horse Open Sleigh DSP with one of the Nested Essentials Dies and I adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Horse & Sleigh photopolymer stamp set (Online Exclusive item available July 6) in VersaMark ink on a panel of Pebbled Path card stock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder from the Basics Embossing Powders and heat embossed it.

I cut the sentiment out with one of the Stylish Shapes Dies and then adhered it with Stampin’ Seal and Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.  I added three of the silver pearls from the Festive Pearls to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Horse & Sleigh stamp set in Pebbled Path ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and then inked, stamped off and stamped the tree image from that stamp set in Pebbled Path ink next to the sentiment.  I added a strip of One Horse Open Sleigh DSP to finish the inside of the card.
