I used the Cheerful Christmas stamp set and Nordic Noel DSP from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share today. I also tried out something fun with Rhinestones and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder to create the little gold embellishments. 🙂
My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #162, I just flipped the sketch on its side.
The colors for my card were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments #198.
I started by adhering a panel of Nordic Noel DSP to a panel of Garden Green card stock, then to a Real Red card base with SNAIL.
I adhered a smaller panel of Nordic Noel DSP to a panel of Garden Green card stock with SNAIL. Then I wrapped a strand of Gold Baker’s Twine around the panel 3 times and adhered it on the back with tape. I adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then tied a strand of Gold Baker’s Twine through a Gold Basic Metal Button and adhered it to the card front with little pieces snipped from Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I colored the sentiment from the Cheerful Christmas stamp set with my Real Red, Garden Green and Soft Sky Stampin’ Write Markers and I stamped the image on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Garden Green card stock with SNAIL, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To create the little gold embellishments, I snipped a few of the large and small Rhinestone Basic Jewels from the sheet (leaving them attached to the backing). Then I pressed the rhinestones down onto my VersaMark Ink Pad, covering the tops with ink. I sprinkled them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, then quickly heat embossed them.
It just took a second with the Heat Tool to melt the powder and during the heating process the rhinestones became rounded…which I kind-of liked! I was pretty quick with the Heat Tool since I didn’t want them to melt completely. I let the rhinestones cool, then adhered them to the card front.
I adhered a strip of Nordic Noel DSP to Whisper White panel inside the card.
