Jessica Fick, the Design Team Coordinator for GinaK Designs, has issued a challenge to all of the past and present team CSS team members to make a Christmas card with one of these sketches:
Here is what I came up with:
For my first card, I used an older Gina K set--Warm and Cozy Christmas. I simply stamped the image and cut out the boy (there is a tree behind him in the stamp). I used the "joy" sentiment in Warm Winter Wishes to stamp right next to him in the circle.
I added some red crystals in some of the snowflakes and added some icicle stitckles below his feet so this card sparkles a lot.
Materials used: Stamps-Warm and Cozy Christmas, Warm Winter Wishes (sentiment) (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; cardstock-Ivory , white pure luxury (Gina K Designs); Copic markers; icicle stickles (Ranger); designer paper-Mini deck-Jolly by Golly (Cosmo Cricket); crystal rhinestones; pom pom ribbon (JoAnns); Spellbinders scalloped circle die; Cuttlebug (Provocraft); ribbon-May Arts; corner rounder punch (Creative Memories).
This was an easy card to make and I love how quick (and beautiful) cards are that are made with this ornament stamp. I finished this off with a big bow, made with my Bow Easy!
Materials used: Holiday Hospitality, Vintage Borders (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; cardstock-tan leather, silver lining (Gina K Designs); silver cording- (Gina K Designs); Designer paper- Everafter: Something Blue (Cosmo Cricket); ribbon - May Arts; adhesive silver dots (Mark Richards); Scor-Pal; Bow Easy.
