Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I am really excited to share today’s card with you as it comes from one of the first suites I had to get my hands on when this Mini Catalog game out, and now it’s on the retiring list 😦
The Boughs of Holly Designer Series paper is simply stunning and is the backdrop for my card. I layered the poinsettia pattern with the Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler which creates such a beautifully rich look.
To add a holiday touch, I die cut the frame from the Gold Metallic Specialty paper and it seems to make the centers of the poinsettia really pop out. I also die cut a piece of the designer paper with several green shaded to put behind the leaves.
To keep the deep rich them of my card going … I heat embossed a piece of Cherry Cobbler with Clear Embossing powder and die cut the cherries. I also cut the detailed part of the cherry in the Gold Metallic paper. To bring in the deep green from the designer paper, I cut 3 sprigs from the Evening Evergreen cardstock.
A simple piece of white Bakers Twine behind the leaves complimented the white used for the greeting. Then I added a few of the Gold Holly Leaves to balance out the entire assembly. To complete my card, I added a piece of the designer paper onto the Basic White and then layered a piece of Evening Evergreen behind the Basic White.
If you take a good look at my card, then flip to page 24 on the Mini Catalog you will see where I got my inspiration from!! I think our catalogs are a great place for inspiration, and if you have shopped with me in the past year … You are on my mailing list and will be receiving the upcoming Jan – June Mini and Sale-a-bration Catalogs!! Woot Woot!! Just my way of saying “Thanks” for choosing me as your demonstrator ❤
Thank you so much for joining me today, I hope I inspired you with these rich, warm colors.
Have a great weekend!!
