Love Life - Stampin' Celebration Challenge #94

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve, then Christmas, and then on to New Year's Eve.  The challenge at Stampin' Celebration here is "Let's Celebrate" with a photo to draw inspiration from.
The black and yellow clock counting down the time to the end of the year and the beginning of the New Year caught my eye.  Now, I'm not one for overly celebrating at that time of year, so I chose one of the upcoming Sale-a-Bration stamps "A Happy Thing" - the lemons, because that is a fruit that is put in a lot of celebratory beverages - plus I like the colour partnered with black.

These lemons were just crying to be placed on a Joy Fold card.  In making this special fold I used the tutorial from Splitcoaststampers here.


Two lemons were stamped on a 3 1/2 by 1 1/2 piece of  Whisper White cardstock, and coloured them with blendabilities.  My light Daffodil Delight was drying out, so I finished colouring them with a Daffodil Delight ink pad and an Aqua painter. This just goes to show you that the blendabilites can be used in conjunction with other colouring materials. This piece was matted with a 3 3/4 by 2 3/4" piece of Basic Black cardstock.    This was attached to the front of a 3 by 8" piece of  Daffodil Delight cardstock scored at 4".

To the inside of this front piece a piece of 3 3/4 by 2 3/4" of Back to Black DSP.  An identical piece was adhered to the other side, and then a 3 1/2 by 2 1/2" of Whisper White was added for the sentiment and messages.

This Daffodil Delight piece was adhered to the center of a 5 1/4 by 4" piece of the reverse side of the chosen DSP.  This was attached to a piece of Basic Black cardstock 8 1/2 by 4 1/4" scored at 3"

On the outside flap of the Basic Black piece a 4 by 2 3/4" piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock that had been embossed using the  wax paper resist technique using the Stripes Embossing folder.  For information about this technique check out a video done by Patty Bennett here
