Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Let's Get Ready For Christmas


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
This week the challenge is

Lets Get Ready For Christmas 

We are showcasing Clearly Besotted Productsthis week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.
The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store to a lucky winner.
Here is my card for the challenge inspiration. I used Be Merry Stamp set from Clearly Besotted.

I started by stamping the wreath and ribbon from Be Merry Stamp set on 80lb Neenah White paper and diecutting them using Be Merry Coordinating Dies. Since the wreath was a little small, I thought I would hang it onto a door or window things. So here's how I did.

 I took out a piece of Neenah Texture White Paper and diecut it using Stitched Notes Dies. I then cut out two windows using Simon's Window Panes Dies. Sentiments were chosen from Stained Glass Greetings set and small sentiment was heat embossed using Super Fine White Embossing Powder. The background panel behind the white windows was ink blended usng Distress Oxide inks (Worn Lipstick and Cracked Pistachio).

After I foam mounted the window panel onto the ink blended panel, I adhered Be Merry  Wreath and ribbon on the top, then I placed them on a piece of plaid pattern paper and then on a card base made of School House Red Card Stock.

As a final embellishment , I glued some Metallic Gold Jewels

So now it’s YOUR turn.
