CCMC Holiday Edition Saturday Challenge-Week 3

Hmmmm............the challenge for today for Create with Connie & Mary subscribers: A "Cool Christmas Card-that one of a kind for someone special". I think this will qualify:

Do you like? I again created a 2-piece set for our Saturday Challenge.

The card:

The "Gently Falling" Stamp Set is a 2-step stamp set. First I stamped the background colors for my leaves: Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede. I then stamped again with the outline part of the stamp, with VersaMark Ink and sprinkled with Pewter Embossing Powder. I just LOVE this new embossing powder. It is definitely my favorite! I then set with my Heat Tool. Add a Pearl Jewel to the center of each leaf.

I also used a Sponge Dauber and sponged VersaMark ink on the edges of my panel. I first embosssed the Whisper White Panel with the Snow Burst Textured Impressions Folder. Then, dip the edges in the Pewter Embossing Powder and set with the Heat Tool. Hand-cut all the leaves and plop them on your card with Stampin' Dimensionals:

What about this cute little matching goodie box? Super cute and made with the same supplies that I used on the card:

Instead of leaves I used acorns for the front. The box is from the Box #2 Die and my BigShot Machine:

Supplies for both projects:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White
  • Inks: VersaMark, Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler
  • Tools: BigShot Machine, Box #2 Die, Snow Burst Textured Impressions Folder, Modern Label Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Pewter Embossing Powder, Heat Tool
  • Stamp Sets: Gently Falling, Forest Festivities
  • Accessories: Pearl Jewels, Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon
