I created today’s card for this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge GDP158. I used the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and the Candy Cane Builder Punch along with the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper to make a Christmas card in pink and green – one of my favorite holiday color combos.

 

Here’s the GDP158 sketch challenge:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Lemon Lime Twist card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5″ x 3-3/4″ (dot pattern)
  • Granny Apple Green CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 2-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 1/2″
  • Optional: Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card

Stamped with the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set:

  • sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist ink onto the Whisper White CS strip

Cut using the 3/4″ Circle Punch:

  • both ends of the sentiment strip
  • NOTE: stick each end into the back of the punch down through the circle and punch

Cut using the Candy Cane Builder Punch:

  • 3 candy canes from a scrap of DSP (herringbone striped pattern)

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • candy canes glued onto the Granny Apple Green CS layer
  • twine wrapped around the Granny Apple Green CS layer, and secured on the back using Tear & Tape
  • another piece of twine tied in a bow aroun the first piece of twine, and secured to the Granny Apple Green CS layer using a rolled up Mini Glue Dot
  • Granny Apple Green CS layer glued over the DSP layer
  • sentiment adhered over the twine using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Optional: Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
