ID: MC July 11 - Xmas Tidings card
5.5"w x 4.25"h

Created: July 22, 2011


One of the challenges I'm entering is Black & White plus 1 other color. And there was a little "fudging" since when i embossed the front it made the inside just a touch too small, so had to add on the piece on the right side which gave me more of the "black" element plus added a touch of sparkle. I have since corrected my mistake for the embossing part...

This card also uses a stamp from Quietfire Design

So I embossed the front with a Crafts Too "Swirl Frame" CTFD3008 which I love. I decided to keep the front just white - I tried a few other options, but I liked the clean look this gave. I cut out the window portion.

I used Distress stamp pads (Barn Door, Fired Brick & Worn Lipstick) direct to paper and also using a sponge tool. misted with water and heat set. Stamped the sentiment through the window onto the inside using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed it.

Punched out a border using Martha Stewart Punch around the Page border punch #Bubbles" #42-60052 from black cardstock. Adhered it to my card, then adhered the white velvet red glitter dot ribbon (Michael's Celebrate - Holiday Ribbon).
