Hello again. I'm back with another Christmas card today. I am in a kraft card phase at the moment so I am predicting quite a few posts using this product.
I had bought these stamps and matching dies called Perfect partners by Sheena Douglass quite a few weeks ago and I was waiting for the right time to use them.
The main stamp is A6 in size and I decided to use it all in one piece. Probably I should have cut out just the central image but I liked the idea that like this it looked less perfect.
So I stamped it with versamark ink and embossed it in ivory. Then I distressed edges with the Tim Holtz distressing tool. I matted it on ivory and kraft and attached it to base card.
Then I die cut the poinsettia, twigs, pine needles and pine cones. I then stamped them with the corresponding stamp using coffee archival ink.
However for the poinsettia I stamped with versamark and embossed with gold detail powder.
I then shaped them and layered them up as shown.
You can see that I used 4 layers for flower. Then I finished the card off with a few pearls.
And as usual I do hope you like this natural look, Theresa xx
