Welcome to week fourteen of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!
Do you ever love the “B side” patterns more than the “A side” patterns in a Designer Series Paper pack? I especially love the “B side” patterns of the Storybook Gnomes DSP – it is full of beautiful snowflake and tree patterns in soft blues, aquas and greens.
My card tonight was inspired by the Pool Party snowflake pattern in the Storybook Gnomes DSP so I decided to pair it with the Evening Evergreen Glimmer Specialty Paper to create a Christmas wreath card.
Pool Party and Evening Evergreen work so well together I decided not to add any more colours to this colour combination.
My favourite die in the Country Wreaths die is this elegant double bow die. I’ve layered it on top of a Pool Party Sheer ribbon bow for extra dimension and impact.
The Evening Evergreen “berries” on the wreath are created using the Dots & Spots Die to die cut out the Evening Evergreen Glimmer Specialty Paper. This die is great for creating your own embellishments using specialty papers.
I also added a strip of this gorgeous Evening Evergreen Glimmer Specialty Paper underneath the sentiment which is stamped in Versamark ink, white heat embossed and die cut out with the Stylish Shapes dies.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Tina Gillespie – I can’t wait to see what Tina has created today!
