Christmas Lodge - Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

 Good evening!  We had a great weekend spending some fun family time together and hope you were able to have a restful weekend also.  When I saw this weeks Stamping 411 challenge sketch I immediately knew the Christmas Lodge stamp set would be perfect. 

The cardbase is Cherry Cobbler and then has a layer of Frostwood Lodge designer paper.  The main image is a 3 1/2" circle of Whisper White cardstock and I stamped the house image after inking the stamp with Garden Green and Early Espresso Stampin' Write markers.  Then I used the color spritzer and  a Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write marker to add speckles to the paper (this was my first time using the color spritzer and I'm still figuring it out, but it definately adds a fun element).  The circle is then matted on an early espresso scallop circle that I cut out with the Big Shot and the Scallop Circle #2 die.

The greeting is from the stame stamp set and uses Garden Green classic ink.  I used the ticket corner punch to punch the corners and then sponged Crumb Cake ink all over the cardstock.  I used a bone folder to break the fibers of the cardstock and which made it easier to ribble the greeting.  The final touch was a bow made with 3/8" Cherry Cobbler quilted satin ribbon and a rhinestone added to the "C" in the greeting.

This card is so pretty!  The Christmas Lodge stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorites from the Holiday mini catalog, you definately have to get this stamp set.

Have a great week!
