A quick post from me today - mainly because I'm still feverishly getting my cards made and secondly because I didn't photo document this one as I was making it (as it was bits and pieces of other cards that ended up together)!
I had received a free package of an embossing folder (with border strip), a British Robin stamp and a couple of sayings, with a magazine last month and had used the folder on this piece of purplish textured cardstock.
I had some scraps of watercolor paper where I had been playing with my purple and green Nuance powders, which I had also heat embossed with Sparkle. I used the anti static bag over the piece before stamping the couple sleigh riding in Versamark and heat embossing with black detail. It was then cut and embossed with Spellbinders Classic Oval die.
The sentiment was also from the freebie package and I stamped in black StazOn before coloring the poinsettias with pencils to match my scrap piece of "Nuances Poinsettia" left over from a project that I will share next week. The sentiment was die cut and embossed with Spellbinders Mega Ovals and I added some Lavender Iris to the purple petals using a Sakura Glue Pen.
A little green sheer ribbon bow was tucked behind the sentiment and then it was all attached with dimensional foam. This was layered on to a white card base to finish the card.
That was it! Not bad for a bunch of bits and pieces, right?
OK, that's all for now - back to the drawing board or should I say craft room!
