Hello readers and welcome back from the weekend! I hope you found a little time to do something crafty. It's never too early to start your handmade holiday cards! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge to share with you at Inky Paws. Challenge #137 is a color challenge using red, evergreen, lime green and white. So, if you're looking for some Christmas inspiration, let's see what you can create using these fun colors!
For my card, I used the new Nutcrackers stamp set and coordinating dies along with the challenge colors:
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I used a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of lime green argyle cardstock from the Sunny Studios Argyle paper pack. Using the Frames and Flags die set, I cut a scalloped rectangle from white cardstock and adhered it to the center of the card. Using the Circle Frames dies, I cut a large circle out of vellum and adhered it to the center of the scalloped rectangle. I stamped the two nutcrackers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and colored the images using Copic markers. I used the coordinating Nutcracker dies to die cut the two nutcrackers out. I also die cut the words "Pa Rum Pum Pum Pum" from red cardstock, using the Nutcracker dies. I adhered the two nutcrackers to either side of the scalloped circle with 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Using a Lawn Fawn liquid glue tube, I adhered the words between the two nutcrackers. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the nutcrackers for added sparkle.
