A Cute Christmas

I was in the mood to make a Christmas Card today, so looked around for a challenge.  Technostamper has a fun sketch (TSSC143) and SCS292 has a color combination of Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette and Real Red.  I can work with that!


I pulled out Stampin' Up!'s A Cute Christmas stamp set and decided to use an image I hadn't worked with…the stockings!  I stamped the image with Black Stazon ink on Whisper White, then colored in the images with Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz and Real Red Stampin' Write Markers.  I layered it on Real Red.  I cut the circle from the Circles die with Pear Pizzazz cardstock. 



The base of the card is Pear Pizzazz.  I layered Whisper White on it that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.  I used a strip of Candy Cane Christmas DSP in the background and layered it on Real Red cardstock that I trimmed with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I wrapped the Real Red Satin Bow around to the back and adhered.  I stamped Have a Cute Christmas with Black Stazon on Pear Pizzazz and punched with the new small Oval Punch and placed it under the bow.  The stocking element was popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals on the front. 


I added 1/8" Certainly Celery Taffeta Ribbon to the center of the Real Red Designer Button…I love that we can do that!  I adhered it to the front with Mini Glue Dots.  I think it made a FUN card…what about you?

Oh great combo for Christmas.  I love the button on the side and the circle for the sentiment.  Great touches.  Fabulous card, thanks so much for playing along.
