Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas in Black, Green and Gold

I used the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas stamp set to create a clean and simple Christmas card to share with you today.

My card design was inspired by the Fusion Sketch Challenge this week.

And the colors on my card were inspired by Global Design Project #GDP109.

I started by adhering a panel from the Merry Little Christmas DSP to a Basic Black card stock panel with SNAIL.  Then I punched a strip of Merry Little Christmas DSP with the Banner Triple Punch and adhered the banner to the card front panel with SNAIL.  I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the panel twice, tied a bow and then adhered the panel to a Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Basic Black card stock, then sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I cut the sentiment out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits Die and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a piece of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to the back of one of the Gold Foil Sheets, then cut it with the snowflake die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  I adhered the snowflake to the card front with the Adhesive Sheet and then added a gold enamel star from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set in Basic Black Archival ink and the tree in Old Olive ink on a Whisper White card stock panel inside the card.
