Stampin' Up! Season Like Christmas Bridge Fold!

Hey there! I haven't been posting here as often as I would like, but you know how crazy December can be! I'm still stamping, and not without things to share, so bear with me, I will be posting as often as I can!

Today I have another project from my December group of creations for the December Creative Crew at Splitcoaststampers. This card is a bit of a "step-up" from my last post with based on the inspiration photo. I used the bridge-fold technique  with Versamark Resist:

The Bridge Fold is fun because it easily stands up for display, but also folds flat for mailing.

Versamark Resist is very similar to the Crayon Resist technique I used on my last Creative Crew project. I stamped the more open tree image from Season Like Christmas with Dapper Denim ink first, then stamped with the more solid image over the first with Versamark ink. I let the Versamark dry for a bit (or you can speed up the drying time with a Heat Tool.) I added 3/4" punched circle for the moon, then used a sponge brayer to add Smoky Slate ink over the entire piece for a great moonlight look. I stamped snowflakes from Tags & Trimmings with Smoky Slate ink before I removed the mask. Smoky Slate stamped shows up darker than Smoky Slate applied with a Sponge Brayer! I stamped a sentiment from Star of Light with Basic Black ink.

I used Glossy card stock again for the snowy scene and the greeting strip on the bridge. As you can see with the "Merry Christmas" from Star of Light  stamped with Basic Black ink, you have to be careful stamping on Glossy card stock. It's easy to slide your stamp on the slick glossy surface! I was ok with the way this one turned out because it looks like an intentional "ghost image" behind it.

I used a die from the Starlight Thinlets to cut a bit of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for a star/snowflake embellishment on each side of the greeting. I added a single rhinestone for some sparkle.
