A Blinged Christmas Tent Topper

>> Wednesday, November 18, 2009

I have another tent topper card to share with you. This one is different. First, I rarely use a greeting as a main image. And even more rarely do I use this much bling. I used one rhinestone brad and 3 rhinestone stickers. I worked 13 hours today and I'm exhausted. And because I'm exhausted, I didn't plan anything! I just sat at my desk and started. Who does that? Not me!!!

Anyway, I hope you're as pleased with the outcome as I am. Maybe I should use bling more often!

I used a Marvy Mega scallop punch for the Yesteryear Christmas Greeting (G130). I sponged the edges with old olive ink and added a dotted line under "Christmas" with a fine tip red marker. I stamped the new Holly Giga Circle (L120) with old olive ink and used the Marvy Giga scallop punch. I used a red fine tip marker to fill in the holes for the berries and mounted the greeting on the Giga scallop. After adding 3 rhinestone stickers, it was partially taped onto a 4.25 square card and when finished, it fits nicely into a standard A2 envelope.

The top old olive layer is stamped in old olive with the Gift Background (H1140). The designer paper (unknown source) is added with red ribbon and a rhinestone brad to secure the ribbon. The brad and ribbon warped the card a bit, so I used a bit of red sticky tape to adhere the top old olive layer to the red layer. And to finish the card, I popped up the layers with dimensionals on an old olive card base.

You can find all three of these stamps on this DRS Designs online catalog page.
