It's Wednesday! That must mean STAMPIN' QUEENS!

Did you like my sneak peek from yesterday? If you did, you're going to LOVE the full card. Even my hubby liked it! LOL!

But first, the sketch:

I was a bit baffled at first, because it didn't seem like there was meant to be a focal image of sorts. But, since I still had my Christmas Lodge set out from Monday's card, I decided to go with that.

And here's what I came up with:

My jumping off point (oddly enough) was a piece of Always Artichoke cardstock. I know...weird. But, I had a small stack of pre-cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" Always Artichoke card bases sitting around and I can't for the life of me remember why I had them. So, I decided to use them for the layer under the Very Vanilla and on top of my Cherry Cobbler card base. These two colours together make for such a classic Christmas combination, don't you think?

I stamped the main image on Very Vanilla and then spirtzed it with my Spritzer Tool (thanks Ann!) using my Always Artichoke marker.

I then added a layer of Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler which I first punched using the Scallop Border Punch. I added a piece of Always Artichoke Seam Binding and adhered the layers to the card base.

To finish things off, I stamped the the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla and hand cut it out before adhering it to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals (of course!)

What do you think? If you LOVE this card, we'll be making it on Saturday at my 10 card Christmas class. There's still space! For just $30, you'll create 10 unique Christmas cards.

INK: Cherry Cobbler, River Rock
PAPERS: Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler
