Retro Rubber Challenge No. 76 - Merry & Bright with Gina K Designs and Memory Box
Happy Cyber Monday everyone!! I hope everyone had a great weekend and got some great deals. I was a very good boy and only bought some stamps from a really cool company in the Ukraine. Now I get to wait...
Today I have a card I made for Challenge 76 on the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog, which is an "Anything Goes" challenge.
I decided to make a Christmas card using a stamp set called "Merry and Bright" that I bought from Gina K Designs....YEARS ago....and had yet to use! Unfortunately it is no longer being made but you can find so many other beautiful designs on her site!
I started by adhering a piece of red cardstock to my top folding card base. I also cut a piece of white cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle die from the Stitched Shapes set (Simon Says Stamp). I then placed the Starlit Breeze die (Memory Box) across the cardstock and cut that die. Keep the stars that fall out for other projects.
I wanted some glitter to show through the dots and stars so I pulled out some scraps of silver glitter (I am sure we all have some) and adhered them behind the dots and stars with double sided tape. I then cut a piece of white fun foam and adhered that to the back, covering all the scraps.
Using a stamp positioner and come Onyx Black Versafine ink I stamped the hanging ornaments so that they looked as if they were hanging off the stitched stars and then I stamped the phrase "merry & bright" to the right of them.
Next I colored in the ornaments with a light blue, red, and green Sharpie markers, adhered this to the card front and adhered 3 silver sequins to the card front.
And...DONE! So simple to make and I love the silver slitter through those stars. It does make this card "merry & bright". LOL
Here is a close up of the card front and the the full card again.
I hope you enjoyed this card and step by step. Please let me know by leaving a comment below! Have a great day and...until next time...
