Christmas Arch Card

This is the last sample card that I made using Tina's Christmas Centrepiece stamps.  I decided to emulate the arches that are traditional at Christmas.
Lay the semicircle outer frame over a piece of Clarity stencil card. Brush Broken China distress ink through the aperture.
Add intensity of colour round the edges by dragging the ink off the stencil with a spot on sponge.
Stamp Have a Sparkling Christmas in Majestic Blue Versafine ink and heat emboss it with holographic powder.
Add the stars within the semicircle in the same manner.
Stamp the holly cluster around the top of the semicircle in the same ink as before and heat emboss.
Add a candle above the sentiment in the same way.
Colour in the holly, candle and around the semicircle with a grey watercolour pencil.
Blend out the colour with a water brush.
Trim the card down to 15cm x 11cm and mat onto a piece of Indian Summer designer paper leaving a wide border.
Add to the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank.
To finish, add two lengths of ribbon along the bottom of the card with tape and trim.
