DCBD #146

Today is the real day for another diva challenge.  This one was a color challenge, and boy was it a challenge.  I went through so many card ideas and designs before I finally came up with something I considered acceptable.  DCBD146

  After trying several different stamp sets, I decided that the colors could be used for a Christmas card (and after seeing the cards some of the other Divs’a made they thought the same thing. )    The main image was stamped on Shimmery White cardstock and colored with markers. 

dcbd 146I had a hard time deciding exactly how I wanted my layout to be.  I had it narrowed down to 2 different ones and then played eeny meeny miny moe to pick.  But afterwards I decided that I wanted to see what the other layout would look like so I created a second card.  dcbd 146-2I learned on this card that if you have multiple layers already adhered together when you round your corners that it will leave a small dent in the top layer of cardstock.  It is really obvious at the top right corner of the image.

This is a little card that I have been wanting to case from the catalog and these colors worked for it too! dcbd 146-1 Stamps:  Big On Christmas, Sparkly and Bright

Ink:  Real Red, Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay

Paper:  Shimmery White, Real Red, Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Very Vanilla, Merry Moments DSP

Accessories:  Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Ribbon, Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon (used the “wrong” side so it would be plain),  Stampin Dimensionals

Tools:  Corner Rounder Punch, Star and Large Star Punches

Pin It Now!
