LOVE rub-ons! This card was very minimally stamped, but given a great feel with a couple of rub-ons!
This one is another that took on a completely different look than what I intended. My inspiration was the Alpine ribbon (this set of ribbon is so yummy!) I used Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, and Chocolate Chip card stock, just like the ribbon.
The theme of this one is distress, distress, distrss. This a much different place than where I started! The RHR and Old Olive pieces were sponged/distressed with Chocolate Chip (both sponging and running edges through the ink pad). The Chocolate Chip was stamped in Versamark with a snowflake from Snow Swirled and then given torn edges.
The sentiment comes from the Season of Cheer rub-ons! These are fabulous and gave my card a sementiment to match this theme! The snowflake was stamped on Very Vanilla, then punched with my 1 1/4″ punch (this was distressed with a sponge, dipped in Chocolate Chip ink). This was layered with Riding Hood Red (also ink-distressed, punched out with my 1 3/8″ punch). The final layer was Chocolate Chip card stock, punched with the round scallop punch. This was accented by a brad in Antique Brass (in the metallic brad collection/multi-pack).
The overall feel is a card with a “warm” result! Riding Hood Red and Old Olive both distress wonderfully and really get richer with age! (wish that was true for us all!!)
