Evening, y'all! Just popping in to wrap up a Paper Sweeties November Release with one final, festive creation.
I started this card by stamping a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of watercolor paper several times, in Jet Black ink, with the holly image and hashtag sentiments. I then watercolored the holly and added white Gelly Roll pen accents to the berries. A slightly smaller piece of vellum was run through my Big Shot to get the snowfall texture and anchored, in the center of the watercolored piece, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching before popping it up, with foam tape, in the center of the Riding Hood Red, cardstock, card face.
I then die-cut the For You tag from a large, polka dot print; backed it with cheesecloth; and popped it up, with foam tape, near the left edge, in the vertical center of the the card face. It was topped with a stamped, in Garden Green ink, on a Wild Wasabi die cut, Hello Spring wreath, embellished with white Gelly Roll pen berries; a die-cut, gold, cardstock, Joy Sweet Cuts "Believe" sentiment; and a die-cut, text print bow, dressed up with a red button, laced with white string.
A double, white, seam binding ribbon bow, embellished with a lone pearl, backed with a Baker's Twine bow, completes the look.
That wraps things up for this month, folks. Run get your new release goodies while they're hot!
Debbie has asked me to continue guest designing through the New Year, so I guess y'all are stuck with me for a bit longer. There won't be a new release next month; but we'll be back on the first with the monthly Inspiration Challenge, and we've also got a number of holiday blog hops in the works. So, the inspiration will keep coming all December long. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed, friends!
