This card is for the OWH Stars & Stamps challenge being sponsored by Robin's Fetish to "try something round" on our cards. The round item on my card is this cute Cocoa mouse image by SNSS. I stamped it on watercolor paper, embossed it with clear detail ep, and colored it with Tombow markers. The candy cane on the sentiment panel is a Jolee sticker, and I embossed the chevron DP with a similar embossing folder to give it a little dimension. Sentiment is by Inkadinkado and I used Spellbinders circles and ribbon tags die cuts. Ribbon is from my stash.
I made a red & gold version of this card last week, so I wanted to try it with silver and blue for this challenge. May Arts ribbon is sponsoring a challenge over on the Stars & Stamps blog to create a Christmas card for our troops (and/or heroes) and wrap it up using ribbon. I wove the ribbon through the Spellbinders fancy tag diecut and I love using ribbon in this way because it goes through the mail without extra postage. I used 2 lengths of ribbon, and fastened it down with Scor-tape. The mat behind the sentiment panel is metallic silver which explains this wonky photograph. The reflection just doesn't make for good photos, but the colors are real pretty IRL. I used a SU fancy scalloped border punch, SU! snow swirled stamp set, clear ep, versamark ink, square and round silver brads and a snowflake embossing folder for the background. The ribbon came from Michaels.
That's it for me today but I wish you all a wonderful Tuesday!
