Wrapping up the blog hop

I’m ready to move on, so I’ll “debrief” the last two cards in the hop:

Debra Burgin Elegant EvergreenThis is such a simple card, there’s not much to tell!  It could get a lot fancier, but I wanted a 10-minute card for my upcoming Jingle Jump.

Stamps:  Evergreen*

Ink/Color:  Old Olive, Early Espresso

Paper:  Riding Hood Red, Brushed Gold, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla

Other:  Big Shot, Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Apothecary Accents Framelits, 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch*, 3/16″ Metallic Brad (Gold), Stampin’ Dimensionals

*Holiday Catalog

Debra Burgin Blue EvergreenThis was my first attempt at a window card with an overlay image — my first and so far only!  What you see is what I created on the first try.  The tension was high in the studio as I worked out the engineering aspects.

For example, there’s not much room to work with in the frame.  In hindsight, I should have used a wider frame so I had some room for error.

Also, you have to be so very careful not to get adhesive of any kind on the window sheet — it will not come off.  Absolutely do not try to use the Adhesive Remover; it just makes everything worse.  I tried to use rubbing alcohol on a cotton swap to get a tiny bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  If you see the card IRL, you’ll still see a smear.  Anyway, you’ve been warned!

Someone asked about the shading seen in the picture.  Sorry, but that is indeed a shadow, not some clever sponging on my part!

Stamps:  Evergreen*

Ink/Color:  VersaMark, Midnight Muse

Paper:  Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Brushed Silver, Window Sheet

Other:  Heat Tool and Stampin’ Emboss Powder (White), Smooch Spritz (Silver Foil, Vanilla Shimmer), Big Shot, Labels Collection Framelits, Dazzling Details (Silver Sparkle*), Pearl Basic Jewels
