The current JustRite Stampers Challenge is easy. Make a Christmas Card or Tag. The winner of the challenge will receive two sets of die sets from the JustRite store, three honorable mentions will oone die set! SWEET!!!
For my creation I started out stamping the biggest stamp from Musical Notes in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on Classic White cardstock. One was cut out and embossed with the second largest Label 20 Nestabilities die, the other with the third largest die. The ribbon and ornate embellishments of the image were colored with Copic Markers (R24, R27, R29, YR21, YR23, YR24) before both labels were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress ink. A sentiment from the Christmas Nested Frames was stamped in Rich Memento Ink in the center of the smaller label before that layer was adhered to the larger label with dimensionals.
A piece of MME Lost & Found Christmas was cut and embossed with a Label 21 Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and then cut at the embossed line. A piece of Kraft cardstock was cut and embossed with the same die. The edges of both the cardstock and paper layers were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress ink before the layers were stitched on top of each other.Red Seam Binding (Stampin’ Up!) was tied around the layers. The bow was topped with a button, tied on with Linen Thread.
Another piece of Lost & Found Christmas paper was cut and embossed with the second smallest Grand Label 23 Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and cut off at the embossed line. A piece of Kraft cardstock was cut and embossed with the same die. The edges of both the cardstock and paper layer were sponged with Vintage Photo before the layers were stitched together. The sentiment layers were adhered to this layer with dimensionals. Cream Baby Bling Pearls finish off this section.
Now I had to decide if I should make it into a card and just cut a base for it, of into something else. I thought it would look great as a box. I took pictures while making the box for step by step instructions. If you are interested how I made this, click on more.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
