Another holiday card finishing up two more challenges this week. This card satisfy the Color Throwdown challenge (CTD221) colors and uses the sketch from Viva La Verve December 2012 week 1. The sketch was designed for a square card, but I went with an A2 since I don't have any square envelopes. However, in the end I'm not quite sure those jingle bells will fit in the envelope!
About the Card
The base is an A2 in kraft (didn't have Crumb Cake) followed by layers of black and DP from Teresa Collins - Christmas Cottage paper pad. The circle panel was cut out with spellbinders nestabilities circle dies and the corners on the long panel were punched with the SU large corner rounder. The black filigre at the bottom was punched out of black using Spellbinders Fancy Tags 1 dies. The sentiment from Verve's Santa's Helper was printed on Kraft with Onyx Versafine ink and cut out with Verve Mini Vintage oval dies. The image was printed on white with Onyx Versafine, colored with Prismacolor pencils and Goo Gone and cut out. The image was embellished with a red rhinestone and Xmas Red Stickles before mounting on dimensionals. Finally, ribbon, 10lb. twine, and green jingle bells were added for bling!!
