This is my card for two challenges
Divas by Design challenge blog - Christmas in August
DoCrafts Creativity Club challenge - Last of the Summer wine.
The stamp set I used for the card is Enchanted Christmas by DoCrafts. This was a prize I had won for winner a Creativity Club challenge a few weeks ago.
I begun by stamping the Father Christmas image with black Memento ink pad. I coloured it in with ProMarkers. I added gold and red Stickles to the image. I used Stampin' Up Crumb Cake ink pad and a sponge dauper to distress the edges. I mounted this onto a panel of gold card and a die cut Lacy Square.
I drew a square on a square Kraft card blank. I added gold peel offs around the line. I masked-off the centre square. I stamped the holly design around the edge with Red Cobbler Stampin' Up ink pad. I added a red gem in each corner.
I stamped and coloured in the holly and box corner image. I added this and the main image with foam pads. I used ProMarkers to colour in a silver greeting peel-off which I then added to the card.
