I loved the colors in Shari's cards. Although, I didn't have those colors, I did find some kind of close. The paper I used is from an old K&Co paper pack. I had never used it and thought this might be the perfect time. The tree stamp is from SSS called Merry Trees. I stamped my trees in Juniper, Topiary, Crystal Blue, and Sky. This is not a normal color combination for me, but I think it kind of worked for this paper.
The way the light hits the card, it almost makes the sentiment go away. I stamped the sentiment from CTMH's Merry and Bright stamp set in versamark ink. I used our silver embossing powder and heat set. Here's a better angle to see the sentiment.
The little twine bow was kind of an afterthought. Meaning I had put the card together before I wrapped my twine around the card face. So, I added a little line of glue across the paper and just laid my twine on there. I was going to carefully tuck the ends under the card and glue them in place. But I decided to just leave them kind of hanging off the sides, because, well, it's my card and I can do that! Lol.
The other card is stamped in Crystal Blue ink with the Blessings of Peace stamp set. I used the stamp set Christmas Joy for the sentiment on it.
I added a banner of our silver shimmer trim. The sparkles are from Studio G. I just scattered those on both cards.
I also made another card based on this design. I was in the coloring mood. I had a Christmas paper pack from DCWV that I had never used as well (I'm beginning to see a pattern..hmm). I tried my hand at a more traditional card.
The horn stamp is from the Yuletide Greetings stamp set. I stamped it in Memento ink and colored the image with copics. I used our gold embossing powder for the sentiment. Same design, very different card.
That's it for me tonight. I'm hoping I can get a few more cards from class done. Wish me luck! lol.
Thanks for stopping by!
