Sunday last week the Featured Stamperon Splitcoast was Heather Prince. She is a very sweet fellow challenge chaser on SCS and a wonderful stampers. I picked this card of hers to case. I kept the colors, the Christmas theme and even the pink paper. I added sewing, switched the ribbon to a different spot and exchanged the main image shape to an oval.

For my main panel I cut an oval with Petite Oval Nestabilities out of Classic Cream Neenah cardstock. With the die still on I stamped the music background from the Crafty Secrets set Vintage Christmas in Antique Linen over it. Then I sponged the oval first with Antique Linen, then with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The sentiment is from the same set stamped in Walnut Stain Distress ink.

The oval was layered on Canyon Brown Neenah cardstock cut and embossed with Label 11 Nestabilities. A bow was tied with the Bow-Easy and Stampin’ Up! Espresso Ribbon and attached to the ovals with a Recollection Brad (Michaels). Scor-Tape was added the the lower edge on the backside of the oval. Crochet Trim was folded over it to add a ruffled edge.

The card base is a 4 3/4″ x 9 1/2″ piece of Neenah Classic Cream Cardstock folded in half. A 4 1/4″ square of the same cardstock was embossed with the Snowflake Impressabilities. I left the Impressabilities on and sponged Antique Linen Distress Ink all over it. The layer was stitched to a 4 7/16″ square of Canyon Brown cardstock.

The edges of a 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Very Merry October Afternoon Paper were sponged with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Canyon Brown cardstock. Two 1 1/2″ x 3″ pieces of Good Cheer October Afternoon paper were stitched to Canyon Brown cardstock pieces cut with Long scallop Rectangle Nestabilities. The layers were adhered on top of each other. Latte and Champagne Kaisercraft pearls were added to finish off the card front.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day. Hugs and smiles
