Hello everyone and welcome to a new Saturday Sketch Challenge from the Stamping 411 Operators! I created this card a few weeks ago and have been so excited to show it to you. I'm just thrilled with the way it turned out!
Cherry Cobbler accents combined with that dazzling Silver Glitter Paper make for a beautiful card! The stamp sets are Gifts of Christmas and Four the Holidays. I embossed the dove image using Versamark Ink, Silver Embossing Powder and the Heat Tool. The Big Shot and the Petals A Plenty Textured Embossing Folder created the beautiful background texture. The ribbon is 1/2" Cherry Cobbler Seam Tape. The scallop border was punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. Stampin' Dimensionals were used to attach the Focal Image to the embossed and glittered background. Let me tell you, this card really sparkles in real life. It reminds me of the glistening new fallen snow!
If you want to recreate this card for yourself, here are my measurements:
- Layer One -- Cherry Cobbler Cardstock cut at 5.5 x 8.5", scored and folded to make the card base.
- Layer Two -- Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 x 5.25" and embossed with the Big Shot and Impressions Folder.
- Layer Three -- Cherry Cobbler Cardstock cut at 2.25 x 5.25" -- punch the bottom edge with a border punch.
- Layer Four -- Silver Glitter Cardstock cut at 2 x 5.25". Use ribbon across the card to hide the "seam".
- Layer Five -- Cherry Cobbler Cardstock cut at 2 5/8 x 3 5/8".
- Layer Six -- Whisper White Cardstock cut at 2.5 x 3.5" -- stamp and emboss. The sentiment flag is 1/2" wide and I trimmed the points with Paper Snips. The bow is attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.
- Inside of Card -- Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 x 5.25". Trimmed with Cherry Cobbler Border Punch strip, glitter cardstock and Seam Tape Ribbon.
