Hello everyone. I know I really should be sharing Christmas cards, but when you have lots of birthday's coming up and a few birthday card orders you need to slip them in between making Christmas cards when you can.
I received my new PTI order, so pulled out "better together' stamp set and created this.
For my card base I used PTI - noted scalloped A2 die vertical. Love how this cuts both front and back at the same time. I just ran it back and forth a couple of times because of the thickness of the paper, but it cuts beautifully. I sponged some PTI aqua mist along the edges of the scallops.
White frame was cut using the same scalloped A2 die but one of the inner dies of the set, love the detailed piercing on this.
For my image, I stamped the large flower from 'better together' using versamark ink and then heat set it using white embossing powder. I tore a piece of heavy PTI polka dot vellum and laid this on the bottom half of the embossed image making sure it tucked inside the white frame area. I also embossed one of the flowers from the same set and used a couple of copic colours to colour, then used the matching die to cut it out.
I added pop dots behind the frame and popped it up over the vellum and image. Next I tucked the single flower down in the left corner. To finish off I added a silk ribbon bow, pink enamel dot on the single flower and some PTI rain drops.
I don't have a lot of Christmas cards to share right now, because some of my orders are requesting the same cards I made last year (which I have already posted). I'm on my last card order, so hopefully in a few days I will be able to create something 'new' to share in the line of Christmas cards. Stay tuned!
I know everyone is busy at this time of year, so just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you taking the time to stop by for a visit. See you soon,
