A Happy Holiday

August 21, 2008

This is a card made for today's Ways to use it challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.

Used stamps from the Vintage Christmas Stamp Collection of Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamp. Vintage Santa image was stamped with Onyx Black Versafine on white cs and then colored with Lyra Aqua Colors. Used an Opaque Inkssentials white pen for the beard area. Used a oval coluzzle to cut the image and edges were sponged with Walnut Stain. Used a versamark stamp pad on the front of the oval and heat embossed with clear UTEE several times. Holly leaf border was done by curving the leaf stamp from the Vintage Christmas collection and stamping on white cs following an oval shape. The Holly leaf border was colored with Tombow markers and hand cut with scissors on the inside and outer edges following the stamped pattern. This was mounted on top of the main image. This piece was then mounted on to an oval scallop red cs. Background DP from Harvest Floral/Vine - Mustard Moon was hand torn on all edges, distressed with Walnut Stain and then sewed on to the green and red cs. Red and Green cs was also distressed just on the edges with Walnut Stain. Added ribbon and Happy Holiday metal sentiment.
