I combined 3 stamp sets to make this card. Evergreen, Serene Silhouettes and Snow Swirled (the sentiment). I stamped the scene on a piece of vanilla, then cut it into 3 sections, then trimmed some of the sections so they were of different heights.
The bottom red piece is cut out with edgelit and embossed with the matching pattern.
This card is the one that my Stampin' Group will be making. I used the folded Christmas tree technique from Splitcoast. I'm not even going to try to explain it. Here is a tutorial. I made 2 trees (one circle total) and put them together.
Some fun details
- piercing around the circle
- edgelits and embossed
- pearls on the tree and the star popped up
- I highlighted some of the words in the sentiment with blue, the rest are brown
I love the paper stacks! The price is so good for getting so many different patterns! I am pleased to see another paper stack offered in the new Spring Mini Catalogue! (available in January).
I made this card for 3 challenges...
The challenge at The Paper Players was to use gold or silver. I embossed the bird image, the sentiment and the edges with gold.
Which fit right in with the technique at Splitcoast to emboss the edges. I used a versamark pen around the edge of the kraft paper and embossed it. I also sponged with blue. The sentiment is popped up over the decorative label punch and I added two pearls.
I got the layout from Sketch Frenzy Friday.
I am submitting this card for the design team tryout at The Paper Players.
I love this "Frosty Friends" set. I think it is very versatile. Here I only used part of the image and cut it out. I embossed dots and punched out some snowflakes from "Snow Swirled".
This Black & White gingham is my favorite ribbon EVER! I still have a little bit of it left.
My daughter asked to make cards with me. She made a lovely and creative card for me and while we were making she said "Mom, we're having a lot more fun than the boys!" (My husband and son were outside). So cute and priceless!
I used my biggest clear block and markered it all with green and pressed it onto the paper, this is what showed up! I stamped the tree and sentiment in green. I stamped another tree overtop and embossed with iridescent ice. You can catch the shimmer much better in person. I wish it stood out a bit more though.
