JustRite Friday Challenge #086


Today's card is another for the JustRite Challenge #086. For this challenge were to use jewel tone papers and accessories and use any colors (or similar) from the inspiration photo in your project.

I don't know why, but I always have a difficult time using jewel tones, and this project was no exception. I tried so many different color combinations and these are the colors I finally used.


I didn't have any jewel tone pattern papers, so I decided to make my own.  I stamped the background with a small ornament stamp with StazOn metallic ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I stamped the largest ornament 5 times, die cut with Spellbinders dies, folded them in half, and glued together to give the card some dimension.

The ribbon was made using seam binding and reinkers. I used a pre-made flower from my stash and colored it to match the ribbon using a reinker.

Well that's it for me. I have 20 Christmas cards to finish before the end of the week. Have a fabulous week and I'll blog with you later.

Stamps: JustRite Merry and Bright

Ink: StazOn Metallic Copper; Distress Ink Pine Needles, Salty Ocean
