Pals Paper Arts #20

This card could qualify for KISS (Keep It Simple, Sweetie!), too! It was quick and easy to make, one stamp set and minimal accessories.

Color Challenge: Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Soft Suede

  • I stamped just the word "jolly" from one of the Christmas Punch stamps. I used my Stampin' Write Marker in Soft Suede to color the letters, isolating them for the sentiment. I cut that out with my Word Window punch, then matted it with one slice of a double-bordered Eyelet Border punched out of textured Crushed Curry.
  • The Santa stamp is another image from Christmas Punch, stamped onto Whisper White with Old Olive ink. I punched it out with my Scalloped Square punch and matted it with textured Old Olive card stock. These were both popped up with dimensionals and centered onto a piece of textured Soft Suede.
  • I used a piece of Crushed Curry polka dot grosgrain ribbon to "wrap" the panel and then set it on a card of textured Crushed Curry.
Don't forget to play along with Pals Paper Arts! You could win blog candy!

I hope you will shop with me any time you need Stampin' Up supplies!
