To A Wild Rose Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  Inking up the stamp set “To A Wild Rose” was a fun way to make a Christmas card with a non Christmas stamp set.  I am thrilled with the results and hope you will ink this stamp set up and make a Christmas card too.  Enjoy the hop!

The Sketch:

To A Wild Rose Christmas Card:

The recipe:

Card base: Whisper White 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

DSP panel: Wrapped In Plaid-1/4 x 3-5/8

Gold Strip: Gold Glimmer Paper 5-1/4 x 1

Sentiment piece: Whisper White

Swirly pieces: Gold Glimmer Paper

The details:

The Rose:

  • Stamp your rose and leaf images (2) from the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set with Black Tuxedo Memento Ink onto a piece of Whisper White Card Stock
  • Color your images using your Stampin Blends as follows
  • Rose: Cherry Cobbler
  • Leaves:  Shaded Spruce
  • After you color in your images die cut them out using the Wild Rose Dies

The Sentiment:

  • Die cut your sentiment piece from the Wild Rose Dies using a piece of Whisper White Card Stock
  • Stamp the Sentiment from the  Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set using Tuxedo Memento Black Ink (stamp the sentiment to the right side of  the die cut piece)

Putting the card together:

  • Adhere your gold strip to the bottom of the card front
  • Adhere you DSP panel to the front of the card overlapping the gold strip
  • Adhere your sentiment with dimensionals to the front of the card and off to the right side a tad
  • Adhere you flower with dimensionals on top of the sentiment piece
  • Tuck one set of leaf clusters under the top of the flower
  • Snip the other leaf cluster apart and adhere these leaves to the bottom of the flower

More details:

  • Die cut some swirls using the die from the Christmas Cardinal Die set using the Gold Glimmer paper
  • Adhere the swirls under the flower at 11 and 5 oclock
  • Punch some dots from the Gold Glimmer paper using a few different sized paper hole punches and adhere them to the front the of the card in clusters
  • Add a few of the Gold Metallic Pearls in with the Gold Glimmer dots
  • Add one large Gold Glimmer paper punched dot for the center of the flower and you are done!
