Silent Night Holy Night - SNSDC77

It's time for another challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog.  This week, the challenge is to use stitching on your card.  It can be either real or faux.  I have stitched ribbon and I did faux stitching around the edge of my card. I pierced holes all along the edge of the main panel and then drew my "stitches" with a pen. Like my real stitching, it's crooked. Oh well!  That's "art imitating life" right?




There is a snowflake embellishment up in the left corner but it's hard to see in the picture.  I used blue "pearls" to accent it to help it show up a little better.  Some of the snowflakes in the paper have star dust stickles in their centers -- of course, that's also hard to see in the picture.  On the white embossed lower panel, I used some left over bling from the flourish to accent the centers of some of the snowflakes.

I did quite a bit of interior decorating -- the camera angle makes the writing panel look huge.  It's really a 5.5" square card.  :)  I was just trying to show the whole interior but ended up with a funky angle.



Here is a close up of the interior upper panel.  I carried the stitching theme throughout the entire card.  This upper panel has reversed matting (I'm sure there's another name for it).  The Scripture verse is actually on the bottom and the kraft & snowy blue papers are layered on top.



Supplies:
Cardstock - Bazzill, Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper - Bo Bunny (Snowfall)
Stamps - Sweet 'n Sassy Digi (Christmas Carol Sentiments)
Embellishments/Tools:  Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Snowflakes), Spellbinders Label 3, ribbon (The Paper Studio), Prima Say It in Crystal Flourish & rhinestones, snowflake (Michael's), blue pearls (Oriental Trading), Stickles (star dust), SU Stampin' Write pen (Night of Navy), Signo white opaque pen

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Stamptacular Sunday #186 - No Rules (aka anything goes)
Pile It On #43 - A Holiday Card (obviously I chose Christmas)
Krafty Journal - Inside & Out
Word Art Wednesday #51 - Scripture or positive sentiment

This is SO pretty, Stephanie. It looks like you used Kraft paper for the base, which, if you did - there is a challenge right now at The Kraft Journal called Inside & Out that this would be perfect for to enter. I'm SUPER happy that you joined in the challenge again this week at Word Art Wednesday. It always blesses me to see your beautiful art shared with us. I appreciate you, and pray for you.
Blessings,
