Cherry Cobbler Christmas card


I wanted to share this card I made very simply for the #GDP011.  I used Whispoer white for the card blank, layered with Cherry Cobbler cardstock with whisper white as the final layer.  I used the Curvey Corner Trio Punch in the corners to add a lovely detail to the card.

I masked off a 1.5 inch strip about a third of the way from the bottom of the card with white copier paper (I used low tack tape to hold the card front and maskl down to ensure there wasn't any movement.  I stamped the bells from the 'Oh What Fun' stamp set in black and covered in clear embossing powder. 

I heat embossed the bells and just using a tissue I lightly rubbed Cherry Cobbler ink over the bells (Ensuring the mask was still in place).  Once I was happy, I removed the mask and stamped the 'HO HO HO; sentiment from the same set in Cherry Cobbler ink, but stamped the sentiment three times before re-inking to get the different effects.  

I wrapped a spare piece of ribbon around the front of the card (it was actuall from the Season to Season wreath kit).  On a spare piece of whisper white I punch the corners to match the card front and stanmped a second sentiment.  Using dimensional pads I adhered the snetiment over the ribbon, tucking a few small sprigs of linen thread behind.

Don't forget this week's Weekly Deals, the 20% off seleced stamps, and the Autumn/Winter retiring ltems


This card is divine Fiona! I love the colours you've chosen as well as all the masking and sponging. Just beautiful! Thanks so much for joining the Global Design Project this week!
