Different Merry Christmas

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Another card for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge, this time our host, Taylor has asked us to use two different types of every thing we use on our card e.g. two different colored buttons/two different designer papers...  Try and wrap your brain around that one when you use the design principle of threes or other odd numbers! LOL!

I've used the Deconstructed Sketch #73 by Sheri Gilson.  My large background piece of designer paper has been dry embossed.  It's followed by a hand cut banner of corrugated cardboard.  Topping that is a piece of red card stock that has been cut with a pennant die.  A piece of coordinating designer paper is on top of that.

Next comes a piece of solid color card stock that's also been dry embossed.  Followed by another hand cut pennant that the sentiment is on.  Next, two poinsettias stamped with the same stamp...remember I can only use two stamps right?  But I made them different by using different designer papers and different colors of Stickles for some bling.

And the embellie...two buttons...different colors and sizes with two different colors of twine.

OK, so here's the count:
2 different colors of card stock
2 different patterns of designer paper
2 different embossing folders
2 different hand cut banners
2 different die cuts
2 different ink colors
2 different hand cut poinsettias
2 different Stickles colors
2 different buttons
2 different twines
2 different stamps

Whew!!! I think that's all!  This really was a challenge but definitely a lot of fun!

And here's what I used:
Paper:  SU! Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke;  a piece of corrugated cardboard and Simple Stories Handmade Holiday
Ink:  SU! Cherry Cobbler and Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps:  Verve Poinsettia Christmas (used the sentiment and the poinsettia)
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Spellbinders circle nesties, Verve Pennant Trim A Cut Above Die, Tim Holtz Sheet Music embossing folder, SU! Lattice embossing folder, misc. buttons, misc. twine, Xmas Red Stickles, and Lime Green Stickles
