Here's a quick gift I put together for a very dear college friend. She works for the state fisheries department, so I though that this stamp from The Cat's Pajamas was just perfect!! I'm running out of sketch and color challenges that would work for this card, so I had to do it all on my own. The companion gift is a loaf of Eggnog bread which I saw over on twelveOeight this week and thought that I just had to try it!!
About the Card
The base is an A2 in Mellow Moss followed by layers of DP from Fancy Pants Designs - Home for Christmas paper pad. The pennant banner was punched using the Verve Ribbon banner die and the horizontal piece was punched using the TCP Big Scallop Border die. The image was stamped on with with Onyx Versafine and colored with Prismacolor pencils and Goo Gone or paper pierced with DP. The panel was cut out, embossed, and sponged with Mellow Moss ink using Spellbinders Labels 22 dies. The edges were distressed with a little Antique Linen distress ink. The sentiment was printed on DP and cut out with the SU small oval punch. It was then mounted on a panel of Mellow Moss cut out with Spellbinders Fancy Tags 1 dies. Ribbon was added for some bling!! The snowflake accent was cut out with Spellbinders Create-a-flake 4 dies and 10lb. twine and bells were added for fun.
