Hello, and welcome to card #2 in my Holiday Card Series for 2016. Today I am playing with the lovely set from Sunny Studio Stamps called Holiday Style. To me, this is a must have for the season! So many great elements to great fun and elegant Holiday/Christmas cards.
I used all Lawn Fawn inks on my card as I love how they stamp, and I love the colors! I started off my stamping my branch from the set onto a piece of smooth white card stock, and used my Misti Stamping tool for precise placement of my image. I love this tool and it has helped me a lot creating different cards.
I used two green from Lawn Fawn - Jalapeno and Noble Fir. Once I was happy with the look of my branches, I moved onto the sentiment, which is from the same stamp set, and I inked it up with Lobster ink. It is one of my favorite reds!
Then, I moved onto stamping out my jingle bell. This jingle bell is so cool once you put all of the stages together. It looks so realistic!! I used 2 gray inks and one black for this - Manatee, Hippo, and Black Licorice.
Then. I stamped out my bow, and used three reds - Guava, Lobster and Chili Pepper.
I did use the matching dies to die cut these images as I wanted to create a bit of dimension to this card. I glued down the "hook" and then added foam tape to the jingle bell and the bow and adhered to my panel.
Then, it was time to add my panel to my red scalloped frame which was die cut using the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle dies. Then, I adhered that to my white card base. I decided to go a head and stamp out a sentiment on the inside.
And, for a final touch I added some shimmer to my bow using the Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen.
I love the classic look of this card!! I hope you do too! I have the products I used linked below and also the How To: Video :)
See you back here soon for Card #3!
