Welcome to the team Stamp It Christmas blog hop.
WOW!! Where has this year gone? Here we are in November already and as I bought my turkey last night, the month is almost over.
“For the young the days go fast and the years go slow; for the old the days go slow and the years go fast.”
I wanted to showcase a bit of non traditional yet festive. I think the Whimsy and Wonder Suite and Bright Baubles Bundles does just that.
DETAILS: I cut my card bases to be 4.25” x 5.50” in basic white. I then cut a basic white layer into be 1/4” smaller. Die cut the bauble FIRST. By cutting the babble/ornament first and then embossing allows the dimension of the snowflakes from the Wintry 3D embossing folder to be retained.
I cut my first strip with the holly and last strip with the snowflakes in 3/4” strips to ensure you were able to see the detail of the paper. The glitter strips were cut in 1/4” strips to not take away from the overall card but provide additional medium and pop. I know the Blushing Bride glitter is retired but I tend to hoard my paper and it’s a great match for the Whimsy and Wonder suite. The remaining DSP cut into 1/2” strips.
I then heat embossed my greeting in Silver as my finishing touch. I just love how the card glimmers in the light.
