Splitcoast Stampers and this week it is Flowergal36 who has the most amazing gallery!!! You should stop by and have a look if you haven't seen it already! I have chosen this card by her to case.
I've change the image, one colour (used red instead of sage), added paper and a sentiment and embossed instead of stamped the vertical panel.
I started off with a Chocolate Chip base card, matted with Very Vanilla (pierced of course! :) ) and then matted again in red and topped with some yummy Wassail paper by Basic Grey. The red bazzill vertical panel was embossed with the Christmas Ornaments embossing folder and then matted with Chocolate Chip and knotted some ivory satin ribbon around it like Flowergal36. The other panel was stamped using The Cats Pajamas reindeer (which is think is gone now, but you should check out their stunning new release, either the clear Elegant Christmas or the rubber reindeers Big Reindeer and Small Reindeer which I just love....will have to save my pennies I think! ) in Close to Cocoa. Then for the first time EVER I actually sponged the edges! Not normally the sort of thing I do, but I have to say.....I kinda like it! I sponged in Creamy Caramel and then Close to Cocoa and then added some ivory pearls to the flourishes in the horns. Then I cut out the scalloped panel with my nestabilities in chocolate chip to mat it on and popped it up. I decided to add a subtle sentiment by Lizzie Anne Designs in Close to Cocoa in the bottom corner to finish it off.
That's all for today, thanks for visiting! :)
