cards, Christmas

A SHABBY CHRISTMAS STAR!!

I was playing around a couple of weeks ago with some “bits” that were sitting around on my table.  I love this “shabby” style of Christmas card I made. (If you could call it that style!).  Here it is.

I had a piece of silver glimmer paper with a star cut out from a previous project.  I really didn’t want to waste it.   Hey! It was nicely centred and positioned the right way especially compared to some other stars I had cut recently.  I layered a scrap piece of DSP from Nordic Noel DSP onto the Lost Lagoon base card.  I adhered the silver Glimmer piece onto this and added a smaller star cut from Lost Lagoon.  To the centre I added a little silver button and a White Baker’s Twine bow.  The greeting from Ornamental Pine is stamped on a strip of Whisper White card. I flagged the end of the strip.

This card really didn’t take that long to put together.  It is a one-of-a-kind though!! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today,

ORNAMENTAL PINE!

I have made quite a few of these cards recently to send out with the Holiday Catalogue.  I really liked this stamp set when I first saw it.  Most days I see these type of pine trees when I go walking. I love that you get some beautiful images Plus special greetings all in the one set.

I have used Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler which might be a popular colour combination this Christmas.  I love the richness of them together.  I embossed the Mossy Meadow piece with the ‘Decorative Dots’ Embossing Folder.  I stamped the pine branch in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White and then cut it out with the Labels Framelits.  I stamped the pinecone in Baked Brown Sugar ink and cut it out.  This was raised up off the White stamped piece with a little Gold Twine bow added.  The Greeting was stamped in Cherry Cobbler onto a strip of Baked Brown Sugar card and then I flagged the ends.  This was raised up off the card too.  A simple card but one that is easily reproduced many times I think.

Have a great day,

Jenny
