Holiday Cheer

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop!  Today’s hop is filled with inspiring projects that share lots of Holiday Cheer.  We are excited to share our projects and hope you’ll find great inspiration from our talented team members in this hop.  After you read my post, I  hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I took my first bit of inspiration for today’s card from the theme of this blog hop, Holiday Cheer. When I looked at my Designers Series Papers and saw Season of Cheer, I knew I had to use it. I chose a couple of very cheerful designs and decided to use them together. Since both designs are a little busy, I separated them by matting them in Cherry Cobbler.

I stamped the sentiment, from the Antique Tags holiday host stamp set, in Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla. I cut it with the Tags & Labels Framelits Dies and matted it with Cherry Cobbler as well. I used a Blender Pen to color the image in Hello Honey, Cherry Cobbler, and Pacific Point.

All the colors of card stock and ink I used are in the Season of Cheer DSP.

Since the corners of the sentiment were cut out by the die, I used my 1/2″ Circle Punch to cut the DSP corners the same way. Since the card’s layout is asymmetrical, I wanted to add as much parallelism as I could.

I glued the two DSP panels directly onto the Pacific Point card base, but I adhered the sentiment panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Three Rhinestone Basic Jewels at the corner balance the layout and add a tiny bit of sparkle to the otherwise matte card. Against the Pacific Point, they remind me of little stars in the sky.
