Okay…so two very different things came together for this ‘contemporary’ card this morning! First was the color challenge on SCS today…Tempting Turquoise, Gumball Green and Pear Pizzazz (I used Certainly Celery…just a little lighter). Second was looking through the website of a stamper (N@ Ali) who has such a fun, clean style (very graphic!) and finding this fun layout. You can see her card here. So you put those two things together and this is what I got!
The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Whisper White. I added strips of Tempting Turquoise, Gumball Green and Certainly Celery. Nest I stamped the ornament three times…two in Gumball Green and one in Tempting Turquoise, cut out using the Holiday Ornament framelit, then cut out the different stripes and layered them. I punched a 1/1 4″ Silver Glimmer Scallop Circle, a 1″ Gumball Green circle, stamped the greeting in versamark and silver embossed, punched with 3/4″ circle, layered and added using a dimensional. I drew a silver line with my silver glimmer pen and added the ornament using dimensinoals, Next I made a ‘bow’ (click tutorial tab above) using Certainly Celery 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and a Silver Brad and added to the card front. To add a little dazzle…I punched out one 3/4″ Silver Glimmer circle and three 1/2″ Silver Glimmer Circles and added to the card front. So that’ my different little Christmas card.
