Here is another holiday card combining two different challenges, The Play Date Cafe's color challenge (#160) and the Viva La Verve December 2012 week 2 sketch. The colors from PDC(below) were really tricky for me and I had to combine prints from two different paper pads to get the cool holiday look. I also had some fun playing with felt and die cuts to accent that sentiment.
About the Card
The base is an A2 in Cream followed by layers of Not Quite Navy and DP from Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage paper pad and My Mind's Eye - Indie Chic "Citron" paper pad. The edges were sponged with Antique Linen distress ink and distressed. The main sentiment from Verve's Glad tidings was stamped on cream with Vintage Sepia Versafine and cut out, embossed and sponged with Bordering Blue inks using Spellbinders Labels 25 dies. The mount was cut out of Not Quite Navy using Spellbinder Ironwork accents dies before embellishing with rhinestones. The Snowflake was cut out of white felt using Verve's Snowflake Tidings dies before sponging with Antique linen distress ink. The Snowflake was stamped with Bordering blue on cream and also distressed. Buttons, 10lb. twine, seam binding and brads were added for bling!
