Good morning everyone! It seems a while since I have posted, but it is really just a few days! I have missed having something new to post, but I got busy yesterday after some household chores and gardening were taken care of.
I saw this sketch here on the 2SketchesforYou blog and thought this would be a great foundation for this JustRite stamp from the Old Fashioned Christmas set as the focal point. The sleigh was stamped, coloured and cut/embossed with a classic circle Nestability and I used foam to pop up over the textured Bazzill beautiful cranberry colour card stock in the blossom shape. The larger circle was stamped separately and coloured/ cut/ embossed in the same manner and popped up on a larger blossom shape in a pretty black K and Co. print. This black and white dp is probably my favourite B/W ever! I picked up the cranberry coloured classic dp last week at Archiver's, but in my haste to get the card together, I used the portion where the company name is on the back on one of the panels on the card, so I really don't know what company it is. The panels are on a Bazzill panel. The card base is Stampin' Up Mellow Moss. The corner treatment is a very old punch that I have and it makes scalloped photo corners that come out embossed to fold over the back of the corner perfectly! On these two corners, I added a portion of another stamped and colored holly and berry border and carefully cut out those tiny pieces.
patterned paper and the detailed Flourishes daisy/echinacaea flower from a year in Flowers. I coloured with my Copic markers and cut/embossed the layered ovals. I used a length of satin ribbon under the lace border and also created a border from the Vintage Cream PTI cs with a MS arches border punch. I have some charms in my stash of stuff and really need to start using them, so I added this bronze medallion and placed an orange rhinestone in the center, to match the ones on the sentiment and the MS punched butterfly.
