This week the Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge Design Team challenges you to make a card with the sentiment as the focal point. I used a number of different elements to this card. I started with a debossed background. Next, I used smooshed technique and die cut a frame. I used a Joy sentiment with a nativity design as the “O”. The final detail was adding a ribbon to bring the overall design together
I look forward to seeing everyone’s designs.
Joseph’s Coat Technique
How to Directions:
Netta from the 52CCT Design Team is inviting us to try a new technique. I have provided some directions on how to do the technique above. I went in a slightly different direction. I used Distress Inks and sponged them on Neenah White Cardstock in various colours. Next, I stamped a bear, bucket of fish, and tree in Versamark ink and embossed in clear powder. Next, I blended Versamark black ink over the cardstock. Finally, I wiped the ink off the embossed images with a paper towel. The bears are from MFT (My Favorite Things POLAR BEAR PALS), the trees (Clearly Besotted LET’S PRANCE) and sentiment by SSS.

I have collected bears all my life. It all started when my brother (who was 8 years older than me) gave me his own panda bear stuffy when I was born. He also called me Pooh or Bear! When I think of Christmas I fondly remember my brother buying me special Christmas bears. When the CHNCC Design Team wanted a bear themed card it was easy for me to make one because I have 100′s of bear stamps, dies, stickers, digis, and SVG cut files. For today’s card, I used a new SVG I purchased from A Little Scrap of Heaven called, Ready for Christmas. I inked the edges with distress ink for added dimension.
