WWC167 - Gail's All About Christmas Challenge

http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/
How is your Christmas card stash coming along? Here's another chance for you to add to it!
I love doing monochromatic cards and think they work well for any occasion - even Christmas. Back in December, I was doing "research" on Pinterest for ideas when I came across a card done by Debbie Henderson of Debbie's Designs. It was gorgeous and I had to CASE (copy and share everything) it.
 
Using the Santa's Sleigh stamp set, I stamped the trees randomly with Whisper White Craft Ink and Soft Suede on Crumb Cake cardstock. The snowflakes are also stamped with the Whisper White Craft Ink, but for the life of me, I can't remember what stamp set they are from. Anything similar would work. The sentiment, from Merry Little Labels, is also stamped with Soft Suede.

The sleigh, packages and wreath are cut with the co-ordinating Santa's Sleigh Thinlits using Very Vanilla, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler cardstocks. I used a Gold Wink of Stella pen to add a little sparkle to the packages.

All that was left to do was sponge around the edges with Crumb Cake ink then I popped the panel up with dimensionals. The card base is also Crumb Cake and I sponged the edges with the Whisper White ink.

  2. What a terrific card, Gail. I love the way the colours give this an "old-time" feeling. The white stamping combined with the Soft Suede really lend a vintage feel against that Crumb Cake. I love the bright "pop" of the wreath. What a great idea to add just that little bit of red and green. Beautifully done.
