Ready for one more Paper Sweeties challenge for 2015? This one is easy...it is a Christmas-y palette that is perfect for making at least one more Christmas card in time for mailing. I decided to go with a Vintage/Shabby Chic look for my card.
If you haven't seen the newest release at Paper Sweeties, you seriously need to check it out, and as a special treat, ALL of the December New Releases are available starting TODAY! That's right! You don't have to wait until the 15th! I especially like the new Dear Santa set because of the sweet little stocking stamps and matching Sweet Cuts dies. For this card, I die cut the stockings in patterned paper, then cut just the cuff portion in white felt, and finally stamped the goodies inside the stocking onto white cardstock, colored them with Copics, and did a little fussy cutting. After inking the edges of the stockings with Black Soot ink, I glued the felt to the goodies, then glued both to the stockings, and popped them up onto a white embossed rectangle with foam tape. Super easy to do, and I love the texture. The rest of the card went together easily. All the pieces, except the white panel have black ink sponged along the edges. The bow is made with Paper Sweeties Tea Seam Binding, and the bling are Paper Sweeties sequins in Black Cherry, Frosting, and Gold, with the centers filled with Lime Green Stickles.
Isn't the challenge graphic fabulous! It just gets you in the joyful Christmas spirit!
I had a lot of fun creating the inside of the card, using ornament designs from the Homespun Holidays Sweet Cuts Die set, and Paper Sweeties Licorice Baker's Twine. The stocking sentiment is from the Dear Santa stamp set and the Christmas Blessings sentiment is from the Homespun Holidays stamp set. Hmmm, I think I'm going to do this again but use it as the front of a card!
Swing by each of my teamies' blogs for some great inspiration, then create your own design for the challenge. The challenge runs for the entire month of December, and if you use Paper Sweeties products on your project, you get an extra vote. Wouldn't it be great to start the new year with a $20 Paper Sweeties Gift Certificate!
