I've been trying to do too much this month and accomplishing little (as you can tell by the dearth of blog postings), but I do have a new Christmas card I'd like to share with you:
The focal point is one of the stamps in Pines & Poinsettias, which coordinates with the designer series paper. I stamped it twice on Very Vanilla, once with Wild Wasabi and once with Real Red. I cut around the Wasabi image and then trimmed out just the parts I wanted in Red and adhered them on top. (I decided recently that I misinterpreted the poinsettia without any green leaves, but I won't be taking this one apart for a re-do.) I added basic pearls (also included in the kit) to the center of the poinsettia and mounted the floral image with Stampin' Dimensionals on a scallop circle punched from Wild Wasabi. I used my Big Shot to cut a Real Red Top Note and stamped it in Real Red using my Music Notes Stampin' Around wheel. I sponged the scallop circle with Wild Wasabi and the top note with Cherry Cobbler. I'm wishing today that I had sponged them both with one color, maybe Chocolate Chip. The card base is our wonderful Naturals Ivory.
