Hello, Honey Bee friends!! I hope your week is off to a great start!!
I combined several products from the latest Make It Merry Collection for a holiday card to share with you today!!
I began by stamping the branches, greenery, bow, berries and pinecones from the Scandinavian Christmas Stamp Set onto white cardstock with Vintage Photo, Bundled Sage, Rustic Wilderness and Festive Berries Distress Oxide Inks. The wreath, string, stars, candle and sentiment (from the same set) were stamped onto white cardstock with Bee Creative Embossing Ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them all out.
For the background, I die-cut a panel of kraft cardstock with the second largest Sweet Stacks: Rectangle Die, then embossed it with the Winter Gems A2 Cover Plate. I used a brayer to apply Bee Creative Gold Metallic Ink to the entire panel, then set it aside to dry.
Once the panel was dry, I adhered it to a white A2 card base. The string to hang the ornament was adhered with Bee Creative Glue. All of the other elements were arranged, adhered together with Bee Creative Glue, then popped up onto the background with foam tape. A few red gems from the Make It Merry Gem Stickers add a bit of sparkle and finish off the card.
I love the way you can still see the kraft cardstock in the recessed areas of the background panel!!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!! Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you next Tuesday!!
