A Concord Crush Christmas
Good Monday Morning Peeps!! I hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed your Thanksgiving.
I am back from my blog break with a Christmas card, made with a few challenges in mind. I started out to make a card for this week's LateNightStampers Challenge. Challenge 98 - Non Traditional Colored Christmas—no red or green. I had in mind to use some shade of purple and the new set I just got the Stampin' Up "Welcome Christmas". While surfing around I noticed Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge was for Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Whisper White, Basic Gray and Concord Crush! Perfect! I changed it just a bit and used some Brushed Silver instead of the gray, but still very close, and since she allows similar colors I went for it.
The base of my card is Concord Crush and I followed that with the Brushed silver and the DS paper is from the Lap of Luxury paper pack. I stamped the main image with Concord Crush ink onto whisper white card stock. The sentiment comes from the "A Cardinal Christmas" stamp set and is also stamped with concord crush ink. I matted this piece with brushed silver. I added some concord crush ribbon and a strip of crumb cake punched with the dotted scallop ribbon edge punch behind the ribbon. The main image piece is cut like a tag and I added a concord crush bow and and antique brad to the end. The image is added to the card with some foam tape on an angle. I added my basic black with three mini brads across the bottom. I added a tiny little silver star to the main image and it is popped up with a tiny bit of foam tape.
Well, that is all from me, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
