This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge – Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green and Baked Brown Sugar. When I saw these colors I immediately thought Christmas! I know it’s a bit early to think about this holiday but I was so excited to use my new stamp set Special Season. I was also inspired by a Christmas card created with this stamp set in the holiday catalog.
This Christmas Tree card was very easy to make. I embossed the Baked Brown Sugar card base with the Northern Flurry embossing folder then added Dazzling Details to add sparkle. I also added rhinestones for more bling. I cut the Whisper White layer as a banner, stamped the Christmas tree image and sentiment. To dress up the Whisper White layer I made a bow with the Raspberry Ripple satin stitched ribbon and added a Frosted Finishes snowflake embellishment. I colored the rhinestones for the tree with a Sharpie very similar to the Raspberry Ripple. I’ve included a close-up photo of the Whisper White layer. Super easy card!
