Merry Sleigh - Technostamper 235

Black and white seems to be very popular colors for Christmas cards this year, but I just couldn't do it.  Some color had to be on my card which I made for the TSSC 235 here

 

To make this card, I placed the sketch on its side.

Technique
Card Base:  The Basic black card base was embossed with the polka dot folder and lightly inked with Whisper White - like it's snowing.
Sleigh and Image Panel  The sleight was embossed with cherry cobbler embossing powder.  The edges of the whisper White panel were pricked with the mat pack and paper piercer
Embellishments: Using the Merry Mini stamp set, 2 different trees were stamped using gumball green ink.  They were punched out using the coordinating mini punch.  Some dazzling diamonds was added to the trees and a rhinestone attached to the top.  The trees were attached to a 3/4" Cherry cobbler circle which had also been paper pierced - with a dimensional.  This was attached to a 1" Whisper white circle.
The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny wishes - the word "Merry" was highlighted with a marker and stamped on a piece of Whisper white card stock and punched with a 3/4" circle punch.  This circle was also paper pierced.  Using a dimensional it was attached to a 1" Cherry Cobbler circle, the edges of which were sponged with Whisper White ink so it would stand out from the designer paper.   A row of rhinestones were placed under the word.

Stamps: Open Sleight, Merry Minis, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Versa Mark, Cherry Cobbler marker, Gumball Green, Whisper White
Papers: Basic Black, Whisper White, Be of Good Cheer designer paper, Cherry cobbler
Accessories: Polka dot folder, Mat pack & paper piercer, Merry Minis Punches, 3/4" circle punch, 1" circle punch, Cherry cobbler embossing powder, rhinestones, dimensionals, Dazzling diamonds
