Ooooh two posts in one day and here is my entry for this week’s challenge at Simply Stampin' which is a ‘Sketch’ (see right). But before I tell you about the card I would like to say a huge thank you to the Simply Stampin’ Design Team for giving me a Top 3 spot last week for my Christmas Pillow Boxes, I will display the banner on my sidebar with pride!
Now onto the card – or should I say yet another gift set - using the very luxurious Brushed Gold cardstock, Mocha Morning Speciality DSP and Pines & Poinsettias stamp set.
First I stamped and gold embossed one of the stamps and the sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock which was then matted onto Basic Black cardstock. Two strips of Mocha Morning DSP and a strip of Basic Black, punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, were positioned onto a Brushed Gold card blank and the card topper placed on top. The ‘merry’ is from Pennant Parade and cut with the Jewelry Tag punch and some tiny Basic Pearls were added to the centres of the flowers. Of course I couldn’t just leave it there and had to make a gift box to match. This was made with the same products but using the sentiment from Just Believe and some Very Vanilla Satin ribbon to tie the top of the box.
