Stampin' Up Merriest Moments Season's Greetings Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Friday Eve and welcome to another week with the Happy Inkin' Thursday Krew.  This week we were given a color challenge: Black, White and a color of our choice.  While I really wanted to use Polished Pink... I am a fan of traditional Christmas colors so I used Real Red.

Today's card features a carryover from last years August-December Mini Catalog: Merriest Moments Stamp Set.  
The card front is a panel of Basic White.  I die cut a piece of Basic White and Basic Black with Stampin' Up Candy Canes Dies.  I layered the two die cuts and adhered them together on top of the Basic White card front.  

I stamped the sentiment on a strip of Basic Black card stock with Versamark ink.  I heat embossed White embossing powder using my heating tool.  I adhered the strip to the card front with liquid adhesive.
I stamped 3 poinsettia from Stampin' Up Merriest Moments Stamp Set using Real Red ink on a piece of Basic White card stock.  I die cut the flowers using Stampin' Up Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder.  I layered the flowers using liquid adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals to the card front.

I adhered the card front to a Real Red card base folded in tent fashion.  I added Stampin' Up Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of each flower.
The inside is a panel of Basic White with the sentiment stamped with Mementos Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped another flower to the corner of the panel with Real Red and Black ink.  I layered the Basic White panel with a Basic Black panel.  I adhered the layers to the inside of the card base.

Thank you so much for hopping by!  I hope you have enjoyed today's card, up next is Terry Lynn.
