I started with the Cutaway Tags: Winter stamp and die set and paper pieced the flowers and holly leaves with Pure Poppy and Simply Chartreuse cardstocks. I did stamp the little dotted veins for the leaves to add a little more dimension to them. After gluing them down to the white base, I embossed the sentiment in gold and then added the berries using Autumn Red Nuvo Drops. I used an old Spellbinders scalloped die for my glitter matting, and because I couldn't get the Stick It paper to cooperate with me, I just ended up spreading glue all over the die cut scalloped circle and then adding some Martha Stewart gold glitter. It dried beautifully and I loved the look of it under the cutaway tag!
I added some Kraft and Simply Chartreuse DSP to my card base and then sponged the edges with Cocoa Bean ink. I also stamped the flourish from Autumn Adornments in Cocoa Bean ink and a couple holly leaf sprigs from Tag-It's #9 in Simply Chartreuse ink. I finished off with some dark red seam binding ribbon and gold sequins. Really LOVE all the sparkle to this card!! :0)
Still a couple days to play along with this challenge, so check out Lizzie's beautiful card and then play along right HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
