For the project I’m sharing today, I’ve used products from the Christmastime Is Here Suite – paired with some products from the Annual Catalogue. I’ve been making quite a few Christmas cards with this suite, but I wanted to try a card that wasn’t a festive card. By trimming down the image and adding a sentiment from another set, I think I achieved a non-festive feel.
To create this card, I stamped the rose image from A Christmas Rose Stamp Set and fussy cut out the rose and leaves I needed for one side of the image. I then stamped a second rose image and fussy cut out only a second set of leaves. The second set of leaves has been layered to the right of the sentiment on my card. The remainder of the rose and foliage has been put aside for the the card I need the rose for.
The rose image was stamped in Black Memento Ink and coloured with a combination of So Saffron and Daffodil Delight Blends. The leaves and little berries have been coloured with Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral Blends. The little pine cone was been quickly coloured with my Crumb Cake Blends.
Because I’d used Mint Macaron Blends, I chose a piece of Mint Macaron DSP from Garden Lane Designer Series Paper for the background. I ran my fingernail quickly around the edge of the DSP to rough it up for a vintage-y feel. I took a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the background script stamp from Very Versailles Stamp Set. Because I used this stamp set of the background, I chose the sentiment from this set also. I ran my nail around each of these too.
For my layering, I added a strip of Daffodil Delight Cardstock, a torn piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock and a strip of Very Vanilla 3/8″ Scallped Lace Trim. Embellishments always finish off a card for me – this time I added three Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.
Here’s my card:
