I used Old Olive as the card base and added a cherry cobbler mat. I cut a poinsettia with my Slice machine from cherry cobbler paper; the poinsettia is cut in two layers and I really like the effect. I used a large rhinestone in the centre of the poinsettia to add a touch of sparkle.
I stamped the Christmas tree in old olive ink; this tree is one of my favourite Christmas images and is from the Season of Joy set. I cut out the Very Vanilla paper with my nestibilities, but before I removed it from the die, I sponged some Crumb Cake ink around the inside. I’ve often seen this technique and was quite envious. I’ve only recently gotten better at it, the trick is not to have too much ink on your sponge.
I used a scallop punch for the bottom edge of the DP, and placed a rhinestone in a pattern on the bottom. Finally, I added my absolutely favourite ribbon…which technically isn’t ribbon at all- it’s called seam binding in Cherry cobbler.
The inside of the card used come more Authentique paper (I seriously can’t get enough of it!), more scalloped border punch and distressed all of the edges.
I’m also really pleased how this card photographed. Some cards are very easy to photograph and some are…well an absolute nightmare. I am getting better, but sometimes it’s still a struggle.
