WICKED Color Combo

WICKED Color Combo

This card was very much inspired by Linda Heller of It was made with lots of new SU! products. I picked two new In Colors for the WICKED demo challenge hosted by Joanne Travis (AKA sleepyinseattle): Soft Suede and Dusty Durango. You may notice I didn’t do any stamping on this card. The sentiment was dry-embossed with the new Stampin’ Up! exclusive Hi Embosslits Die. Afterwards I swiped the Soft Suede ink pad over the raised parts of the card stock.

The image that was stenciled on the background Top Note die-cut belongs to the Vintage Ornaments I Décor Stencils; you can find these elegant, “not-just-for-Christmas” stencils in the Definitely Decorative brochure.

Thanks for stopping by!
