Merry and Type Christmas Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge.  Create any project with the colors of  Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Real Red.  Since I’ve been  in the groove making Christmas cards with the Merry and Type stamp set and coordinating DSP I created a Christmas card with these non-traditional colors.

Do you recognize the Whisper White square shape?  It’s the Top Note Die.  I die cut the shape as you would normally then I turned the cut Top Note 90 degrees and centered it then ran it through the Big Shot again.  Very easy!

The ornament image is  stamped with Versamark and Real Red then heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing powder.  To color the ornaments I used a blender pen and ink pads.

To add some additional sparkle I embellished with light pink rhinestones.  I used a light colored pink  Sharpie to color them.

The sentiment is stamped with Pool Party and Versamark.  I then heat embossed it with Iridescent Embossing Powder to add some sparkle.  I used the the Decorative Label to punch it out then layered it over Real Red satin ribbon.

I hope you’re inspired to create a project with these colors.  Hop on over to HSS to be inspired by our talented design team.
