Dasher Featured Stamper Challenge

For the Featured Stamper Challenge on Stamping Connection SCFC26 Julie Pitta was honored for her wonderful creations. I could not find a blog post on this card but  you can view her wonderful blog and other fabulous projects by clicking here. Here is her card:

And here is my version:
Stamps: Simple Snowflake, Christmas Greetings, Dasher
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Soft Suede
DSP: Cocoa Specialty DSP (retired)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Versamark
Accessories: Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Embossing Buddy, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Mistletoe Ribbon Originals (retired), Stampin' Sponge

The card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Cherry Cobbler cardstock scored at 4 1/4". A piece of Crumb Cake cardstock was cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and stamped with the Simple Snowflake in Chocolate Chip ink to create a background. Then the panel was adhered to the card front. A piece of Cocoa Specialty DSP (retired) was cut at 2 7/8" x 3 7/8". The top and bottom edge were sponged with Cherry Cobbler ink and then the DSP was adhered to a 3" x 4" piece of Whisper White cardstock. A piece of Mistletoe Ribbon Originals was added around the panel and tied into a knot. The panel was adhered to the card front.  

A piece of Whisper White cardstock was cut at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4". Dasher was stamped in Chocoalte Chip ink. The embossing buddy was used before stamping the greeting from Christmas Greetings in Versamark and heat embossing with Gold Embossing powder. Some Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter were added to Dasher's antlers to add some sparkle. This was adhered to a 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. This was then adhered to a piece of Soft Suede cardstock cut at 3 1/8" x 3 1/8" that had the edges sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. This was adhered to the card front to complete the card.

I just love making Christmas cards and this Dasher is such an easy stamp to use. I promise to have some fall inspired cards soon. I won't skip over fall and Halloween. I just really like making Christmas cards. Come back tomorrow to see a My Digital Studio scrapbook page!
