Well, as you know if you frequent my blog....I do love my holiday crafting. This year the JustRite stamps they released for Christmas/holiday are just stunning! I paired them with some background stamps and a JustRite die set to create this card:
The background on the panel was created with the JustRite Confetti Trio stamp set. I used full ink on the top portion and stamped off (or the stamp stamp if you're quick) for the bottom to give it the fade. I used Distress Ink. You can use Weathered Wood, or Stormy Sky....both look great!
The center oval is die cut from the JustRite Hello Decorative Oval Frame die set. The scroll border die was cut in black cardstock, and then I cut out the oval in black cardstock....but went back and cut out the scallop border oval to create the reverse scallop border you see around the scene.
To create the scene in the oval, stamp the Retro Sparkle stamp in Versamark and emboss with clear embossing powder--die cut using oval from Hello die set. Use a soft blue Distress Ink over to get the background to pop. Stamp and emboss the town scene and sentiment from the Nativity Sentiments set using black embossing powder. Place town scene on oval background and trim to fit:
Next fussy cut the town scene and then glue to the oval:
Then use the reverse scallop oval die cut earlier and glue to the oval as a border/frame:
Glue scroll frame die cut earlier to front of card, then foam tape town scene oval piece to the center. Add banner with sentiment, bow and pearls.
Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure to check out the JustRite site for these stamps and dies and so many more!
