Season's Greetings

Here's my card for the current Deconstructed Sketch.  I put together this simple holiday design using a seasonal sentiment from Paper Smooches and a piece of pretty tone on tone patterned paper.

Season's Greetings card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Paper Smooches
The red striped tone on tone paper is from a Simple Stories paper pad.  I added a kraft strip to the top of the panel, then hid the seam between the two panels with a solid red scalloped strip edged with a narrow piece of gold paper.  The "season's greetings" sentiment from the Christmas Sampler set was stamped in red pigment ink on a cream panel, then matted on kraft cardstock.  After adhering two tiny handcut fishtail flag strips to the bottom of the sentiment panel, I set it on the patterned paper panel.  The finished panel was matted on gold paper, then adhered to a kraft card base using dimensional dots.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papersPaper Smooches Christmas Sampler stamp set; Tsukineko Memento Luxe Rhubarb Stalk ink; Simple Stories Say Cheese 6x6 paper pad; Sticky Thumb dimensional dots

other:  Riding Hood Red cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Kraft cardstock (WPlus9); gold paper (Target); scallop die (Papertrey Ink)
