Paper craft project no. 92: Merry Christmas, love

2013-12-03 OLC Merry Christmas love
It’s been a while! I finally was able to sit down earlier in the evening to create this card (although I’ve been making cards and doing a gazillion other things after Thanksgiving). So here’s an A2 one layer card I made while the hubby and I watched an episode of Chuck on Netflix.

For this card, I stamped the couple (in the Ever After clear stamp set from STAMPlorations) in Memento tuxedo black. I stamped it again on a post-it note, fussy cut it, and used that as the mask before stamping the mistletoe stamp (Heidi Grace Design). Then I stamped my sentiments in Memento tuxedo black and Hero Arts pale tomato inks. (The “Merry Christmas” stamp is from the Holiday Artsy set and the “Love” stamp is from the Ever After set). Then, I channeled my Inner Nonni and colored the mistletoe with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I used CG2, JG6, and DG2 (for the leaves), CR8 (for the berries), and FS2 and EB1 (for the background). I affixed Candi paper brads and finished the card by using a Fiskars decorative corner punch that also embosses (not sure if you can see the light embossing on the corners but it’s there).

I’m entering this card to Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #74: Clean and Simple; Bearly Mine Challenge #115: Christmas Sentiment; Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #105: Clean and Simple; and Created with Love Challenge #69: Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’re having a wonderful week!
