Hello & happy Thursday, friends!! Brenda here with you today!! I can’t believe we are exactly one week away from Thanksgiving!! Christmas will be here before we know it and I am trying to get the majority of my Christmas cards done as soon as possible.
I combined a couple of different sets from the newest release for my card today…
I knew that I wanted to use the Winter Botanicals set, so I stamped the images with a light ink for some no-line coloring. After coloring them with Copic markers and colored pencils, the images were all cut out with the Winter Botanicals Coordinating Dies. I cut “Magical” using the Magical Sentiment Die Set from gold glitter paper and red cardstock. I cut a panel for the background and a smaller rectangle from white cardstock and matted them both with red cardstock. The rest of the sentiment was stamped onto the smaller rectangular panel using the Magical Sentiments stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I popped up the florals and die-cut sentiment onto the smaller rectangle with foam adhesive. I also placed foam tape on the back of the rectangle and doubled up the tape on the back of the florals that hung over the edges, for lots of dimension. Gold Ice & Xmas Red Stickles were used to add a little sparkle to the flowers and berries. A scattering of sequins from the Tree Trimmings Embellishment Mix was the perfect finishing touch!
Thanks so much for joining me today!! I’ll see you next Thursday!!
