Card Share: Merry Tex-Mas

“Merry Tex-mas Card” 
Based off Card Sketch #14 by Allison Davis
 Here is my card I created based off Allison's awesome sketch over at Sketch Support:

 Variation #1: Instead of using a Christmas tree as shown in the sketch, I stamped a snowflake swirl in the same general area on my card. I then heat embossed the swirl and added some diamond stickles to some of the stamped image.

Variation #2: My message was the focal point of my card instead of being just an accent. My snow globe stamp had both an image and the sentiment. I colored the image with copic markers, added some stickles glitter to the snow dots, and covered the glass globe area with glossy accents. I also added some red stickles to the holly berries.

Variation #3: Instead of using a decorative edge on my green pattern paper, I rounded the corners with the corner chomper punch.

Variation #4: Even though the sketch didn’t include borders, I added a ribbon and polka dot strip of paper at the bottom to help “ground” my stamped image. I added staples to the ends of the ribbon to attach it to the card.

Supplies Used—Cardstock: Bazzill (Red), Georgia Pacific (White);  Pattern Paper: Die Cuts With a View (The Green Stack), Rusty Pickle (Father Knows Best); Inks: Ranger Distress Inkpads (Gathered Twig, Iced Spruce, Evergreen Bough, Festive Berries), Tsukineko (Versamark, Memento: Tuxedo Black); Stamps: Inkadinkado (Snowflake Swirl), Texana Designs (Snow globe); Ribbon: Marcella by K& Company (Twill Stripe); Tools: WeR Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper), Tim Holtz (Tiny Attacher), Ranger (Foam Blending Tool), Close To My Heart (Heat Embossing Gun); Embellishments: Close To My Heart Embossing Powder (Heavenly Blue), Ranger Stickles (Diamond, Candy Cane); Markers: Copic Sketch (YG03, YG63, YG67, BG10, Y21, E33, E37, W1, W3, W5, R29, R39); Other: Ranger (Glossy Accents), Foam Squares.
