Stamping 411 – Christmas Classics


Yeah!  Saturday and time for another Stamping 411 sketch.  When I first looked at this sketch, I had NO clue what I would do.  Then I saw a new stamp set (for me) called Christmas Classics.  I have wanted this set for the single stamp, Jingle All The Way, that matches the Decor Elements piece.  I finally picked it up with my hostess credits on my last order!

So here is my take on this sketch!  I started with a base of Garden Green (somehow I have ended up with 3 full packages of this card stock color!)  The Whisper White layer was run thru the Big Shot with the Petals A Plenty cardstock…LOVE this look!  I wrapped the Real Red 3/4 Polka Dot Ribbon around and tied it in the front.  I decided not to be a sentiment here since I already had one in the center.  I used my Stampin' Write markers in Real Red and Garden Green to ink up the Jingle All the Way stamp from Stampin' Up!'s Christmas Classics stamp set..  I layered the Whisper White on Garden Green, then a layer of Real Red.

Pretty simple card, but I think it packs a lot of wow with the textured background and the alternating layers!

Make sure to check out the rest of the Stamping 411 Operators to see what they have done this week!  Always some AWESOME ideas!

Connie – I love this card.  I love the texture and the colors. the red and green look fabulous together and it was great to see a card where a sentiment takes center stage.  Love the polka dot ribbon, too.
thanks for sharing
