Okay – on with the card for today! I made a Christmas card for you, using the new First Frost stamp set and the bundled Frosted Bouquet Framelits – over top of some gorgeous Frosted Floral Specialty DSP. Take a look-see:
Back to my usual layering, collage-ifying self, heh? 😉
The layout for this one is from this week’s TGIF Challenge:
And the colors come from the FabFriday color challenge!
And the doily embellishment was inspired from the Inkspirations Designer’s Choice challenge!
I started by embossing a Whisper White panel in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF and matting it on a Powder Pink panel for the card front.
Then I used the little die in the new Frosted Bouquet Framelits to cut a bunch of berry branches from Balmy Blue and Galvanized Metallic Paper, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.
Over those, I popped a panel of Frosted Floral Specialty DSP (matted on Powder Pink) with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I made a two-ended banner from Galvanized Metallic Paper with the Banner Triple Punch and adhered it with Liquid Glue. Then I adhered a Pearlized Doily over top.
I inked up the thistle image from First Frost – using my Highland Heather and Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Markers. I made three of them and cut them with the matching die in Frosted Bouquet.
I also stamped a few flowers in Powder Pink and cut them with THEIR matching dies. I adhered a few of them with Liquid Glue, adding in a few more Galvanized Paper berries. For the final – smallest! – flower, I added a couple of Dimensionals on the back and used them to wind some Silver Metallic Thread – then popped it over the other flowers.
The sentiment, a wooden element from the Farmhouse Elements – was colored with my Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend. Then I spritzed it with some Frost White Shimmer Paper (dissolved in some rubbing alcohol in a Stampin’ Spritzer). That darkened it up – almost to Gorgeous Grape! I adhere it with a little Liquid Glue.
I added a few Frosted Epoxy Droplets – and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped a First Frost sentiment in Highland Heather on a Whisper White panel. Then I added some berries in Balmy Blue – I stamped it twice without re-inking.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Powder Pink mat and into my Highland Heather card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more Balmy Blue berries and a couple of Highland Heather and Tranquil Tide thistles on the front…
…and I added a little more of the Frosted Floral Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.
El Voila! Whew – back in my not-CAS wheelhouse! And I love the soft colors and beautiful florals in this First Frost bundle and coordinating Frosted Floral Specialty DSP! I hope you like!
