Beautiful Season

Here is the third card from the November Make and Take. I'm really trying to get all of the Christmas projects posted before Christmas! I'm not sure it's possible though. it is:

Stamps: Beautiful Season
Card Stock: Basic Black, Basic Grey, Naturals White
DSP: Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: Black Stazon
Markers: Pear Pizzaz, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand, Basic Grey, Basic Blac, Real Red, Bravo Burgundy, Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Top Note Die, Scallop Edge Border Punch, 5/8" Real Red Satin Ribbon, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Paper Snips, Mini Glue Dots

The card base is Basic Black card stock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2" The end of the card front was punched with the Scallop Edge Border punch. Next a piece of Basic Grey card stock was cut at 4" x 4-1/2" and was run through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice embossing folder. This was adhered to the card front. Then a strip of Silver Glimmer paper was cut at 4-1/4" x 1/2" and was adhered to the card front right next to the edge of the textured Basic Grey card stock.

Next a piece of Basic Black and Naturals White card stock were cut at 4" x 5" and run through the Big Shot on the Top Note Die. The Naturals White top note was trimmed with Paper Snips along the stitched edging. The image from Beautiful Season was stamped onto the Naturals White top note with Black Stazon ink and was colored in with the markers. The stamped Naturals White top note was adhered on top of the Basic Black top note. The top note was adhered to the card front and the portion that extended past the fold of the card was cut off with Paper Snips.

A bow was tied in 5/8" Real Red Satin Ribbon was adhered onto the top note with Mini Glue Dots. During the Make and Take I had run out of Real Red ribbon and had to substitute with Old Olive ribbon. The ones with Old Olive ribbon looked fabulous too! I don't know which one I liked better!
