I’m using the Brightly Lit Christmas Bundle for today’s card.
It’s currently in the Year End Sale running now through January 2nd. This promotion features current product on sale and retired product from the Holiday catalog. Product is available while supplies last, so don’t wait!
My card starts off with a card base of Dapper Denim cardstock. I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the brayer to create my background using Dapper Denim ink. I rolled the brayer on the Dapper Denim ink pad (to pick up ink) and then starting from the one end rolled along the Whisper White from one end to the other.
The key is to only go in one direction, don’t go back and forth. I repeated this over and over (a lot) until I get the darkness I was looking for.
I matted this on another panel of Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front.
I used the Christmas Lamppost Thinlits Dies to cut out my lamppost from Basic Black cardstock and the lights from Daffodil Delight cardstock. I also cut out a banner (to go behind the sentiment) from Dapper Denim cardstock.
I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in Dapper Denim ink on a small panel of Whisper White and adhered it over the banner. I cut out the snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies from Whisper White cardstock and adhered them around the card.
STAMPARATUS RESERVATION OPEN TODAY!
As was previously announced, the second reservation window will remain open from December 5–30; however, during this reservation period Stampin Up will take as many orders as they receive (yay!) and not close the window until December 30.
Please note the following changes:
- Beginning March 19, we will ship Stamparatuses in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
- In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows: one reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.
- Because we are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, we will not offer a third window. This is the last chance for you and your customers to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.
