It was my turn to do the challenge over at Sunny Challenges & thought it would be great if we had a Colour Theme. “Pool Party” seems to be the in-colour for Christmas this year, so this should be an easy colour for everyone to join in the fun.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any measurements for my card this week. I sold it last Sunday at the Handmade Expo. I had completely forgotten that I had created it for this challenge & only took a photo at the last moment, else I would have had to create another card.
Stamp Set – Ornament Keepsakes, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink – Island Indigo, Pool Party
Cardstock – Whisper White, Island Indigo, Pool Party, Smokey Slate

I run the piece of Island Indigo CS through the BS using Stylish Stripes EF. This is fast becoming one of my favourite folders. The piece of Pool Party CS was again put through the BS, this time using Pretty Print EF. I then ran a piece of the Silver Ribbon across the middle of the joins & tied a bow. I adhered both these embossed pieces to a piece of Whisper White CS prior to adhering to Base Card – Smokey Slate.
I stamped 3 different size snowflake images onto Whisper White CS – 1 x Island Indigo, 1 x Pool Party & a smaller one again in Island Indigo. The 2 largest were then run through the BS using the matching Framelits prior to layering on top of each other with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut out the middle of the small snowflake & adhered to the centre.
I punched a circle from Whisper White CS with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch, adhered to Base Card prior to adhering the snowflakes to the centre with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The greeting was stamped onto Whisper White CS in Pool Party Ink, punched with the Word Label Punch & adhere to a piece of Island Indigo which had been punched with the Modern Label Punch. It was then adhered to the Base Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To finish the card, I placed a small Rhinestone Jewel in the centre, as well as either side of the sentiment.
