Make It Merry Card - Wendy Vecchi

The challenge for the week at Simon Says Stamp and Show is Inspired by Wendy Vecchi. I am very last minute getting an entry for the challenge because I haven't been home all week but I am finished just in time.

My entry is a Christmas card make using the stamp: Art of Making It Pretty LCS007. Take a look:


The stamp set has five different rubber stamps and between the outside and inside of the card, I managed to use all of them. My card began with vanilla card stock, then inked the background stamp in the set with Old Paper Distress Ink to keep the background light. I heat dried it a few seconds, then inked the poinsettia stamp with Forrest Moss Distress Ink and stamped over the background. Next I inked some red paper with Barn Door Distress Ink to get a little deeper red. On the poinsettia stamp I used the Ranger Emboss It Clear Ink Pad and Ranger Red Embossing Tinsel then heat dried it then cut it out and used double sided sticky foam squares to attach the poinsettia. I inked the edges of the card with Old Paper to stay with that subtle look then used Gold Stickles on the center of the poinsettia and Lime Green Stickles on the swirls of the flower.

I used a piece of the cardstock that had been stamped with the background stamp while I was practicing to stamp "make it Merry." I inked with Ranger Emboss It Clear Ink Pad and Ranger Red Embossing Tinsel then heat dried it then cut it out and used double sided sticky foam squares to attach it to the front of the card.
