My friend, LaVon, posted a card on IG that made me HAVE to get Tim Holtz Seasonal Sketch die set. I found them for under $10, so wasn't much of a splurge--haha! Here's my first card which may be my favorite this year.
I colored the solid die cuts with DO aged mahogany & cracked pistachio--heaviest in the centers. The white detail die cuts are covered with Liquid Pixie Dust for a beautiful sparkle in person. Hero Arts Collage Music Background was partially stamped in Weathervane ink on a Soft Stone panel & the edges were brushed with the ink.
The sentiment is from AJVD Christmas Star. I added tiny pearls to the flower centers & was happy to see that PFS Glacier Jewels picked up the pink beautifully.
I do still like the traditional red & green color combo for holiday cards, as you will see with my last 2 cards. First is a fun card using my old SSS Holiday Frames die & my newer SSS Peaceful Christmas stamp/die set.SSS Wednesday via IG.
Pinkfresh Studio November wreath challenge. I really wanted to make my own wreath this time, so picked out a branch die from PFS Dainty Blossoms. Always good to use up some of my white scraps!
I glued the branches in pairs & arranged them into the wreath. Just before gluing them, it hit me to make the background a wood panel--first time to do this. I just scored the green panel & then used direct to paper with a green ink cube. Love the effect! PFS Classic Holiday Words were die cut from white cardstock & red glitter tape attached to cardstock.
The PFS Layered Wreath die set includes a die that cuts 4 berries at a time. I made good use of the glitter tape area around the negative space to die cut a bunch of berries & added them to the wreath. Flat for mailing, but still pretty festive, I think. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday via IG, The Snippets Playground & Rudolph Days.
