Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I’m excited to share my card with you today because not only am I using the awesome new Blended Seasons stamp set and coordinating stitched dies but I have a really cool technique too!! Not only that … I’ve taken an old favorite and incorporated it into the card as well.
The card was created for my “Color Your Season” Class that I hosted last week … we made a Spring, Wedding, Autumn and a Christmas card, it is the Christmas card that I will be sharing with you.
This was the card that changed 3 times before I got to what you will see today … it was all about the background, but once I picked up the Wood Textures Designer paper … I knew that was it!! You see, I have already pulled out the circle die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies to create my wreath.
The holly was stamped on Very Vanilla and colored with the Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and then cut into sections and wrapped around the wreath. Our bow was created using the Silver Foil paper and the die from the bundle … then, I used the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and colored it!! I wanted red and I wanted the shine!! It works beautifully. You can do it before or after you die cut.
Can you image ALL the new Foil colors you can now use on your projects!! Amazing and soooo easy. And because the Stampin’ Blends are alcohol markers it dries quickly.
The greeting is from the Blended Seasons stamp set and was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and punched with the Triple Banner punch. I also sponged the banner with Sahara Sand to age it a little. The combination of all these single entities created a warm holiday card.
The red foil bow just adds a special touch to the card and really helps make it pop. I also added just a touch of the Wink of Stella onto the holly berries. You could also use the glue from the Fine Tip Glue pen … that will also give it a shine.
