Crazy 4 Christmas...

This week at SCS, the product focus is JustRite Stampers!!! Don't forget to read about it in today's Weekly Inkling and find the tutorial on the Resources Page!! Today we are looking at the Holiday Demi Phrases, 2" Centre and Font Set and Merry Little Christmas Set. I've used all three to create this special, personalised Christmas card. Christmas will be here before we know it, so I'm starting cards now!! :) I was inspired by the brand new challenge blog - Crazy 4 Challenges - who posted this fabulous sketch for us to use!

I started with a base of white, layered with gold and then some Basic Grey Wassail paper. The next panel is more gold and more Wassail and tied with a piece of 1 inch golden brown satin ribbon with the bow done with a Bow Easy. The main panel is two peices of white cut using the Fleur de Lis Pendant die and then offset. The image panel is made using the candles from the Merry Little Christmas Set, the top sentiment is from the Holiday Demi Phrases and the bottom sentiment has been made using the 2 inch Center and Font Set. I stamped it all in Close to Cocoa ink, coloured with markers and cut out with Lg Circle Nestabilities and matted with a piece of gold and then all popped up on top of the Pendant panel. Finished off by adding some Kaisercraft Chino pearls to the base of each of the peaks.

You can find more inspiration from the other JustRite girls here....
