SC 068/12...

It was my turn to set the challenge over at Sunny challenge & Creations.  This week we had to use something from the new Holiday Catalogue plus use the sketch provided.  Now the product could be in the way of Glitter Paper, Embossing Folder, Tulle, DSP, etc.  There are so many wonderful new products that this should be an easy challenge for everyone.

My card didn't turn out exactly how I had it pictured, as I sort of forget to do a couple of things while creating it.  Fingers crossed, I get time to do another during the week.

Measurements -
Base Card - Primrose Petals - 8 1/4" x 4 1/8" or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 - Very Vanilla - 5 5/8" x 4" or 14cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Early Expresso - 5 1/2" x 3 7/8" or 13.5cm x 9 cm
Layer 3 - Champagne Glitter Paper - 3 3/4" x 3/4" or 9.5cm x 1.5cm
Layer 4 - Very Vanilla - 3 3/4" x 2 1/2" or 9.5cm x 6.5cm
Layer 5 - Primrose Petals - 3 3/4" x 1/2" or 9.5cm x 1cm

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Ornament Keepsakes
Ink - Primerose Petals
Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Early Expresso, Primrose Petals, Glitter Paper
DSP - Candlelight Christmas Speciality
Punches - Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border, Boho Blossoms
Embossing Folders - Perfect Polka Dots
Dies - Holiday Ornaments
Ribbon - 3/8" Stitched Satin - Primrose Petals
Accessories - Sticky Strip, SU! Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive, Pearls, Mini Glue Dots

I run the piece of Early Expresso through the Big Shot using Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots, prior to adhering to the piece of Very Vanilla with Snail Adhesive, adhered a piece of Ribbon across it & then finally to the Base Card - Primrose Petals.

I cut the middle from the smaller piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock by running it through the Big Shot  using one of the Dies from the Holiday Ornaments.  The piece of Champagne Glitter Paper was attached to the left hand side of the piece with Sticky Strip, the piece of Primrose Rose Cardstock punched using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch & adhered to the right side of the piece with Snail Adhesive.

I stamped the matching ornament image onto a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock measuring a little smaller than the top piece - 3 5/8" x 2 3/8".  I then placed SU! Dimensionals to the wrong side of the die cut Very Vanilla Cardstock, ensuring they were around the outer & inner edges, but not that they could be seen.  I then adhered this piece to the stamped image, ensuring the images were correctly aligned prior to permanently adhering.

I created a Rosette by cutting a 12" x 1/2" piece of DSP & scoring every 1/4" with the Simply Scoring Tool.  I folded this concentina fold, glued together with Hot Heat Gun & adhered to the middle of the stamped image, again, ensuring that the Rosette was placed in the middle.  I punched a small flower from the Glitter Paper with the BoHo Blossoms Punch, adhered to the top of the Rossette & added a Pearl to the middle of the flower.

To finish the card, I tied a small bow & adhered to the top of the Ornament with a Mini Glue Dot.


We hope you will join us this week.

Until next time, Happy Stampin!

Vicky, your card is gorgeous. Love the rosette on the ornament. Can't believe how close we are this week in our designs. Love that beautiful Champagne Glitter Paper.

Melon Mambo and Chocolate is one of my favourite combinations, I have never seen it used for Xmas cards and it looks awesome!
