Handmade Cards, Holiday Themed, Winter

Tidings of Comfort and Joy

I am completely in love with the earthy natural look of these cards.

The base of the left card is Sahara Sand Cardstock. The next layer is a 4 x 5 1/4  Sahara Sand that has been color embossed using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder inked with Soft Suede just as we did in yesterday’s post. A ribbon of Striped Burlap Trim holds the wreath but the focal piece of the left card is the wreath. This was created by coloring the Seasonal Wreath Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with Old Olive Ink on Whisper White cardstock. Fussy cut the outside edge and adhere to the card with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from Mistletoe Season Stamp set in Old Olive on Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. Adhere the sentiment to the wreath with dimensionals. Place Red Rhinestones around the wreath and accent with a  bow of Real Red 1/8′ solid ribbon.

For the card on the right start with a base of Soft Suede cardstock. The second layer is Very Vanilla stamped with Crumb Cake Ink using the Sheet Music Stamp. Distress the edges with Crumb Cake Ink and a sponge.  To stamp the pine boughs and sentiment use the Christmas Pines Stamp set and Garden Green Ink. The pinecone is made from the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper, Soft Suede cardstock and the dies from the bundle with a dimensional to adhere. The final touch is the Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon bow.
