VSN Challenge 3

The last challenge!

This card uses my 2 favourite colours from our current In-Colour range - Purely Pomegranate and Wild Wasabi. I think they work so well together for a Christmas Card. I haven't used the wide Satin ribbon much so I just had to use it for this card - and it comes in Purely Pomegranate!

The stamp set is Season of Joy - just gorgeous. I stamped the swirl twice along the bottom and top, changing the orientation each time. The image was stamped in Wild Wasabi and Purely Pomegranate on Whisper White. I cut out one of the flowers, the inside of the tree and the letters J and Y from the Purely Pomegranate image and glued them onto the Wild Wasabi one to add some interest.

I adhered a Purely Pomegranate mat to the card base. Then I layered the ribbons (Wild Wasabi double-stitched over the Purely Pomegranate satin). Lastly, I layered the image with Wild Wasabi textured cardstock and used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere them down.

I really love this set for Christmas. I can see me making a lot of cards something like this.

All your projects look great as well Sharon, but I think my favourite is this Christmas Card. That set is on my wish list - have to see what funds allow on return from Europe:)
