Today’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge CC613 involves a color combination of Stampin’ Up! (SU) Real Red, Crushed Curry, and Garden Green. For “dessert”, the hostess asked for “Christmas Glow”. To achieve a “Christmas Glow”, I created a card that features Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Christmas Candles and Sunburst Background Dies for the challenge.
These are the colors for the color challenge. I began developing the card using a piece of Neenah Solar White Card Stock to emboss the ODBD Sunburst Background Die. After embossing the card stock, I laid the die back on the card stock, and using a sponge dauber, I sponged SU Crushed Curry through the die. I sponged more ink onto the outer sections to made them darker.
After sponging, I die cut a portion of the colored card stock with the ODBD Christmas Candles Dies. I decided I wanted to use the Inlay Technique to create the candles and holly. This is a closeup of the result.
To finish the card I added more holly that I die cut with the Tim Holtz Holiday Greens Dies. Using the Spellbinders Holiday Sentiments Dies, I cut out the Merry Christmas sentiment and added it to the card.
I hope you enjoyed my card and will return for further inspiration!

Jesus said, “When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.” Matthew 12:43-45
