Over The Top Card Challenge

Oh my gosh.....I realized this week what a simple stamper I am.  I cannot bring myself to OVER THE TOP a card.  It's not necessarily a bad thing, but for this challenge it was.  Join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week, I want to see what you come up with.



I actually made THREE different cards and finally chose this one....




Is it OVER THE TOP enough?  The card actually measures 3" x 5 1/4" crazy, huh?!  Let me tell you what I did here....I embossed the tree in Wild Wasabi, and the star in gold.  Cut them all out individually, including the Real Red and Espresso trunk and base.  I made my favorite flowers and finished them off with a Basic Pearl.  I stamped the 2 1/2" Circle with the Stripes Stamp.  Whew, I'm exhausted just typing this. :)  The rest you can figure out....here are the ingredients:

Colors:  Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Stamps:  Pennant Parade, Petite Pairs
Punches:  Scallop Trim Border, Word Window Punch, 2 1/2" Circle, Pennant
Accessories:  Red Glimmer paper, Basic Pearls, White Taffeta Ribbon, Real Red Marker

Happy Stamping,
Krista
