Hello to all of you this fine Saturday! I am participating in four challenges today: Addicted to Stamps Theme Challenge #1 - "Christmas in July" and Lollipop Crafts Challenge #84 "Christmas in July" and the Merry Monday July Challenge which is to make 4 cards during July (basically one each week) using any past sketch. I used Sketch #1 for this card. I love the non-traditional color combo in this DSP - a different twist on a Christmas card and probably not one I would send to a male friend - LOL, but I can think of a couple of my other friends who would appreciate this.
I am also participating in the CAS-ual Fridays CFC60 - TEXT ME, which is to use text in your Clean and Simple Design.
As you can see - the text is the only stampin and focus of this card. I used the Sizzix Scallop Oval die to create a base for my frame and then used another oval die to take out the middle of my first oval so I would have a frame to then glue 3/8" pleated satin ribbon around (I see that I didn't get it exactly even all the way around - argh!).
Overall I'm happy with how this turned out - hope you like it too! Thanks so much for stopping in to visit me - I'm sure glad that you did! Hugs!
Supplies (all from Stampin UP - except as noted): Cardstock - Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Early Espresso. Sentiment - More Merry Messages (NEW), stamped with Early Espresso ink. DSP - Letters to Santa (retired). Ribbon - 3/8" pleated satin in Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz. Pearls - Close to My Heart. I used the scallop edge border punch also.
