I made this card for the Our Daily Bread Designs ODBDSLC117 Sketch Challenge. For my card, I made the two contrasting paper patterns and ribbon go horizontally, rather than vertically, but I still placed the bow at the top.
I made the card using a stamp and die set I hadn't used yet. I was really anxious to use this stamp, but it didn't work with the vertical pattern, so I turned it sideways. The stamp is ODBD's Blessed Christmas, and I used the matching Poinsettia Die to cut it out. The Blessed Christmas set has some really gorgeous sentiments to go with it, but they weren't the right shape for this challenge. I have a lot of ODBD sentiments, but the only one I have which was the right size and shape was this one from the Faith Set. I love this one, but I really wanted to use a Christmas one.
I stamped everything with VersaMark, embossed with Superfine detail gold, and colored the poinsettia with Copics. The sentiment was outlined with a Jellyroll pen, and mounted onto Gold mirror card. Both stamped designs were mounted dimensionally onto the Anna Griffin background papers. The background was also mounted onto gold mirror card, and all the white paper is Core'dinations Pearl. The gold cord is from Wrights Trim. I added Liquid Pearls to the corners, and Stickles to the center of the flower.
For those who are following the story about the family of minks, I posted a few photos today.
