I know there is still some time before the Christmas holidays, but that time flies by so fast ~ who else can’t believe it is mid-October already?
So a little planning ahead is in order and today’s card is one I really love, using one of my new favorite colors, Soft Sea Foam paired with Mossy Meadow ~ not traditional Christmas colors I hear you say, but I do like to use contemporary ones.
Although I used a the greeting from the Star of Light stamp set the other features of the card are from the Sprig Punch and embossing with the Blizzard Thinlets Die.,,,, yep – embossing with a die – who knew you could do that?
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Thick Whisper White Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 5 x 3 3/4 Soft Sea Foam Card, run thru the Big Shot with the Blizzard Thinlet Die and the Big Shot Embossing Mats ( see below for more info on this)
Layer 2: 4 1/4 x 3 Whisper White Card
Ink Colors: Soft Sea Foam and Mossy Meadow
I used scraps of Mossy Meadow, Soft Sea Foam and Sparkle Glimmer paper and the Sprig Punch to create my ‘bouquet’ of leaves, the banners were hand cut and attached with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals . A few loops of Silver Metallic Thread and a Clear Faceted Gem – I just love it!
Stampin’ Up! created a video which shows just perfectly how you can use your dies to emboss!
