Dasher...

I did these couple of cards a little time ago, but hadn't gotten round to posting.  They are both the same with a couple of little differences, plus I used a colour that to me has gone a little by the wayside with all the new colours SU have!

Card 1 -
Base Card - Chocolate Chip - 9 1/4" x 4 1/4" or 23.5cm x 10.5cm - scored & folded at 3 1/2" or 9cm
Layer 1 - Bashful Blue - 5 5/8" x 4" or 14cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Whisper White - 5 1/2" x 3 7/8" or 13.5cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 - Bashful Blue - 3 3/8" x 4" or 8.5cm x 9cm
Layer 4 - Chocolate Chip - 2 3/4" x 2" or 7cm x 5cm
Layer 4 - Whisper White - 2 5/8" x 1 7/8" or 6.5cm x 4.5cm

Card 1 - Inside...

I stamped my image direct onto piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Chocolate Chip Ink, adhered this piece to the Chocolate Chip Cardstock & set aside.

With Embossing Folder - Elegant Lines, I run the piece of Bashful Blue through the Bigshot, tied a knot in the middle of the ribbon before adhering to the LHS of the embossed piece.  This was adhered to the front of the card.

I then adhered the stamped piece to the top of the card, ensuring I placed adhesive on ONLY half of the piece to be adhered to the card.  Basic Rhinestones were applied to the image.

Inside -
I stamped the image direct onto Whisper White using Chocolate Chip Ink, adhered to Bashful Blue & then to the Base Card - Chocolate Chip.


Card 2 -
Base Card - Chocolate Chip - 9 1/4" x 4 1/4" or 23.5cm x 10.5cm - scored & folded at 3 1/2" or 9cm

Layer 1 - Bashful Blue - 5 5/8" x 4" or 14cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Whisper White - 5 1/2" x 3 7/8" or 13.5cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 - Bashful Blue - 3 3/8" x 4" or 8.5cm x 9cm
Layer 4 - Chocolate Chip - 3" x 2 1/2" or 7.5cm x 6.5cm
Layer 4 - Whisper White - 2 7/8" x 2 3/8" or 7cmx 6cm

Inside -
I used a Technique - "Bubble Background".  I had watched this great video from Frenchie quiet some time ago & had always remembered it.  While creating this card, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to put this technique to the test.  It creates a very soft suttle background.  One, which I was aimng for, as I still wanted to be able to write over the top for my message.  

Once my background had been created onto Whisper White, I stamped 2 images using Bashful Blue & Chocolate Chip Inks.  I then randomly stamped the Snowflake images around the outside of the card using Bashful Blue Ink.

Front -
Using Bashful Blue Ink, I randomly stamped the piece of Bashful Blue Cardstock, tied a knot in the piece of ribbon, adhered to the LHS & adhered to the base card - Chocolate Chip Cardstock.

I stamped the images onto Whisper White using Chocolate Chip & Bashful Blue Inks & adhered to the piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock.  This piece was adhered to the front of the card, ensuring adhesive was applied to ONLY half of the piece to be adhered to the card. 

All in all 2 very quick Christmas Cards.  These would be great for a Stamp-a-Stack & could be applied for any occasion.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Dasher, Trim Trimmings, Short & Sweet
Ink - Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip
Cardstock - Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip
Ribbon - 1/2" Scallop Dots - Chocolate Chip, 5/8" Grosgrain - Chocolate Chip (Retired)
Embossing Folder - Elegant Lines
Accessories - Re-Inker - Chocolate Chip, Snail Adhesive, Basic Rhinestones, Bigshot
Non-SU - Plastic Dish, Drinking Straw

Until next time, Enjoy!
