Jenn, Lori and I used the Whiff of Joy’s Henry Christmas Bauble stamp with the same Echo Park paper as a friendly challenge between friends.

For my card I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on X-Press It! Blending card and colored it with Copic Markers (Mouse: E31, E33, E35, E37, E39, E02, E04, Ornament: Y38, YR23, YR24, G24, G28, YG25, Hat: R24, R27, R29, R39, C1, C3, Floor: E70, E71, W1, W3, N1, N3, Background: B21, B000, B0000).

It was cut out and embossed with Classic Circle Nestabilities. It was layered on a slightly bigger black cardstock circle and a scallop circle cut and embossed with Scallop Circle Nestabilities out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. The image was airbrushed with Copic Marker B000.

The card base is a 5″ x 10″ piece of Sour Apple cardstock folded in half. White crepe paper was folded and adhered under a 2″ x 4 1/2″ strip of Echo park paper. The strip was adhered to a 4 1/2″ square of Echo Park paper and stitched to a 4 11/16″ square of Basic Black cardstock. Ribbon from Gina K.’s newest TV stamp kit was adhered over the upper edge of the strip and a Recollection Rhinestone swirl was adhered to the top left corner before the image was adhered to the card with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Kraftin’ Kimmie’s Holiday Sentiment stamp set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut and embossed with the smallest of the Petite Oval Nestabilities die. Three Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones finish off the sentiment panel.

To finish off the card, I tied a bow with May Arts Gingham ribbon and topped it with a Basic Grey button. The bow was adhered to the upper left of the image.

I can’t wait to see what Jenn and Lori did with this image and paper. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
