I used the Stampin’ Up! Best Gifts stamp set and the new Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers to create a Christmas card to share with you today.
I started by stamping the sentiment from the Best Gifts stamp set in Early Espresso ink on the front of an Old Olive card base. Then I embossed a panel of Crumb Cake card stock with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and sponged it with Early Espresso ink. I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Early Espresso card stock and then to the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped the image from the Best Gifts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, let it dry completely and then colored it with the light and dark Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I trimmed around the image with my paper snips and set it aside.
I stamped the same image from the Best Gifts stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock. I used my Paper Snips to cut out the center and around the edges of the panel, then I added a little bit of Embossing Paste to give the appearance of snow on the Crumb Cake panel. I adhered Foam Adhesive Strips around the cutout area and adhered the Crumb Cake stamped panel to the Whisper White stamped panel with the strips. I adhered the layered panel to the card front with SNAIL.
I tied a bow with Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon and adhered it to the card front with a rolled up Glue Dot. I twirled the tails of the bow and adhered them with rolled up Glue Dots to the card front as well, then added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment and holly image from the Best Gifts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then colored the holly with the Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers to finish the inside of the card.
