As always, the photos in our colour graphic are really gorgeous and the quote this week is fabulous. As soon as I saw these colours I thought of a rich, gold Christmas bauble - here's what I made.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Nordic Winter, Nutcracker Sweet, 2011 Holiday Ornaments, Christmas Cottage
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Crumb Cake, Elegant Eggplant; Distress - Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord
Spellbinders: 2011 Heirloom Ornaments (S4-334) # 2 & 3, Labels 15 (S4-291) #5, Picot Edged Circles (S4-345) #3
Accessories: SU Card - Crumb Cake; Kanban Card - various; Card from stash
I used this week's sketch at Mojo Monday - MOJO266 for the layout of the card. I bet we all have a stash of card that we sort of horde!! Well, I do and I've decided that I really must start to use it all up! I have a large collection of Kanban card - they specialise in the most gorgeous foiled card and paper - I've used some here!!
I used kraft card to make the fishtail pennants - stamping patterns from Nordic Winter in matching ink. I cut a panel of the gorgeous purple and gold Kanban sentiment card; for a change the photo really catches the shine and colour. The square(ish) panel is another piece of Kanban card, cut with one of the shaped label dies. I stamped the bauble in Versamark, heat embossed with detail gold powder, cut out with Spellbinders die and while still in the die added colour with distress inks; a beautiful gold and purple bauble mounted onto a pretty kraft doily. I finished off by stamping an accent bauble in purple and added a sentiment. I decorated the inside too with a really simple greeting.
