Hello Everyone!!! Today's card is for this week's Featured Stamper Challenge!! This week the honour goes to Chrisations.ink!!! Congratulations Christine and enjoy your week!!! I decided to use the soon to be released Decorative Frames Borders - Round and the Merry Little Christmas Set for the candles in the centre. The November releases by JustRite will be available for sale from this Friday - November 13th!!!
I was inspired by Christine's End of Summer card and changed - the stamps, colours, papers, added an extra punched border, moved the bling, used a bow instead of knots, using embossing instead of scoring.
I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with red bazzill and more VV that has been embossed with Swiss Dots EF. The middle panel is more red bazzill that has been punched on both edges with the Fleur de Lis border punch and layered with VV (pierced) and some Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly DSP. Around that I tied 1" Ivory satin ribbon and added a bow made with my Bow Easy! The main panel has been stamped using one of the soon to be released borders from the Decorative Frames Borders - Round in Real Red and the Candles from the Merry Little Christmas Set. The candles were coloured with markers and a blender pen and popped up on foam tape. Both stamped images were cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities and mounted on an aqua bazzill piece cut out with the Label 9 Nestabilities. To finish I added little Kaisercraft red pearls to each of the flourishes on the border.
