PPA8 Challenge - KISS


This weeks challenge was a great one in theory, in execution a little more difficult. KISS ( keep it simple sweetie) I started with the red and white card using only real red and whisper white along with the Serene Snowflakes stamp set. - Did I like this one ? - not so much. I really wanted to add richer colors so I made the "Joy" card which I was happier with.

I started with very vanilla, chocolate chip and red card stock and combined it with the Merry Moments DSP. I love this color combination! The chocolate chip paper was embossed using the Big Shot texture plates. I stamped the "joy" ornament from the Delightful Decorations stamp set in real red and added dazzling diamonds glitter to the swirls on the ornament to give it a little sumpin' sumpin'. A small amount of floss was adhered to the back of the ornament in order to hang it around the greeting on the ribbon. The greeting is also from the Delightful Decorations stamp set stamped in real red and punched out with a circle punch. Of course there must be ribbon so I added real red polka dot ribbon. The greeting was added to the ribbon and the ornament mounted with Stampin' Dimensionals to finish the card.
