Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Handmade Holiday Release Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this warm and cozy blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Emma Williams’s blog you are on the right track.
For my first card, I used the new Etched Delicate Frond die and Pine Bouquet embossing folder.
I applied the Pine Bouquet embossing folder to A2 sized watercolour paper panel first, and then ink blended the panel with some Distress Oxide inks: Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans. I then made edge-to-edge shaker panel with lots of sparkling sequins & confetti.
I die cut the Etched Delicate Frond from thick white cardstock, then applied gold embossing powder to the end of each leaf. For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Merry die set.
Here is a closer look:
I just could not resist another play with the gorgeous Etched Delicate Frond die. I die cut 3 fronds from thick white cardstock first. I then applied Distress inks to 2 fronds – one that I inked with Evergreen Bough, another that I inked with Bundled Sage. I stamped cardinal in the Winter Birds set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured it with Copic markers.
I dry embossed the panel with the Crystal Distortion embossing folder, mounted it on white card base using double-side tape, then added all elements as shown in the picture. I was so happy to see the result!!
