This week i am headed in a different direction for designing a Christmas card for a friend. I am often inspired by my papers that i have in my stash so this one was actually started with the worded backround in that beautiful soft shade of red. And on top of that i added just the small rectangle from the Charming Tag Pocket to create a pretty backround. I cut 6 of them in white and attached them like you see on the card above. Easy peasy so far right?
Then on top of that i cut/embossed the middle size Hemstitch oval in the same white and stamped a sentiment on the top in black Versafine ink. I then attached it with 3D Foam dots in the center.
And the Poinsettia flowers i wanted to be the same ivory with just a touch of the red in the centers. So I used a mixture of dark rose chalk ink and a darker red ink for the centers and i think it blended really well. You can add lots of layers to your flowers or just a few and add pretty stamens in the center to really set them off. I really love the intricate lines in each of the flowers.....
So when you get all your flowers made and they dry attach them to the bottom of the card over a small bow made with seam binding ribbon. Then add a few rhinestones to the sides and it's ready to mail. I really had fun with this one and i hope that you try something fun and new with your new dies from Becca and you will have to share it with us on the blog... we would love to see what you do too!!
Have a really wonderful weekend,
