Silent Christmas

#stampinup   When I saw this week's Paper Craft Crew Challenge, I immediately thought about using the "Wonderland" stamp set, some gold Winter Wonderland Designer Series Paper, and a Gold Foil Doily. But I had to change my plans just a bit.

Paper Craft Crew Challenge 169. #papercraftcrew #cardsketch

I started with a Basic Black card base. I added a Whisper White mat that I embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. Next, I added a piece of the gold Winter Wonderland DSP and tied a length of Basic Black Stitched Satin Ribbon on. 

It was a this point that I realized the Gold Foil Doily was going to get "lost" on the Winter Wonderland DSP--but I had a brilliant thought (thanks Brandi)! I got out my they're-not-just-for-Halloween Spider Web Doilies and carefully cut away the webbing to leave the lacy medallion. Perfect!

Next, I stamped the trees from the "Wonderland" stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a Whisper White piece. I backed this with a Basic Black mat. I adhered this piece to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a Whisper White scrap and cut it out with one of the Ovals Framelits Collection. I adhered this to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals as well. 

To finish the card, I added one of the Iced Gemstones Embellishments that I've been hoarding and never used until now!!

I really like how this card turned out. I may make some more!
