Hello Everyone!!! I hope all my US friends have had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! Today I was looking around SCS and came across this week's Inspiration Challenge which led me to The Country Porch. Now I don't know about you, but I STILL have a big Christmas card list to get through and when I saw this Holly Berry Tablecloth, it reminded me so much of the Kaisercraft Be Merry DP in my stash! I also used this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch for the layout!
I started with a base of Riding Hood Red and layered with white and some Be Merry DP. Next I took a piece of gloss gold and punched one side with a scallop punch and layered it with Old Olive that has been stamped in Versamark with the Poinsettia Background stamp and also punched with the scallop border punch. Over the top of these layers I attached some white lace and red satin ribbon. For my feature panel, I inked up only the holly part from the Holly Tag Set using my brush tipped black Multiliner and stamped it onto the X-press It Blending Card. Next I stamped it again using the stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the holly corner to create a frame. The sentiment is also from the Holly Tag Set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. The holly has been coloured using Copics - G24, G28, R24, R29. To finish I added a red satin bow to the image corner and some red pearls to the bottom of the card.
