It’s Sunday, and time to play in The Paper Players‘ last challenge of 2014. This is also the last one with our current Guest Designers. I will be sad to see them leave us. I think you will agree they are a talented and creative group. This week we are challenging you to create holiday projects that are fancy. It is what we are calling our Black Tie challenge. I opted to create a simple holiday card using the Festival of Trees stamp set. To up the fancy factor, I embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, matted with Gold Foil, and added a pearl. Enjoy!
|This challenge will run for two weeks. Winners will be announced on December 20th.|
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.
- Trio of trees! Tree images from Festival of Trees were inked in VersaMark and heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Of course, I could not resist decorating this terrific trio with pearls!
- Embossed elegance! The Filigree Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds delicate texture, and is a perfect place to add more pearls.
- Band of gold! Gold Foil, used to mat both the center oval and the embossed panel, adds a “fancy factor” for sure!
I hope you enjoyed today’s card. What do you think? Fancy or not? Won’t you let me know in your comment today? Your comments are important to me. And remember, if you ever have any questions about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away! Until next time…
Note from Muffy: Thank you so much for all of the congratulations! I really appreciate it. We celebrated last night. I picked out new toys, treats and a big bag of dog food at the pet store! Mom said I can have babies now, but we didn’t get any babies at the store. I am so confused. If I don’t get them at the store, where do babies come from? Mom said I have to get bread first, so I guess I will need to go to the bakery.
