Color Me Christmas for TSSC283

It's Monday again and time for a new sketch from Mary Jo at Technostamper.  Another really fun sketch this week, take a look.

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do at first.  I took at look at my stamps from the Holiday catalog and decided to go with a Christmas card.  But not just any card , a pop up card with Color Me Christmas as the main focus.  Here's the front of the card.

The first part of the card I focused on was the banners on the left side.  I thought about using Gorgeous Grunge or card stock banners.  But then I realized that the chevron stamp from A Banner Christmas would work perfectly for the sketch.  I used Old Olive, Real Red, and Crumb Cake for my chevron colors.  The greeting is from Oh, Goodie.  It's stamped with Real Red on Whisper White and die cut with a Bitty Banner Framelit.  Santa was stamped with StazOn Black on Glossy card stock and fussy cut so it could be added to the card with dimensionals.  I colored Santa in with ink pads and a blender pen.  Now for the inside.

Lots going on huh!  The DSP is from the Season of Style DSP stack.  I added in a present done the same as Santa, except it's die cut with a circle framelit to add to the Deco label.  For the greeting, I went back to A Banner Christmas and used the Holly Jolly banner above the present and punched Christmas for below the present.

I just love how the Deco Labels framelits work so well with this pop up!  I was able to do beautiful layering for my focal point.

This was a really fun card to put together.  I hope you will join in with me a create a card of your own!
