I wanted a soft wintery feel to this card, so I began by blending some distress oxides onto Bristol Smooth card. I used Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac. Once the piece of card was covered with ink, I spritzed it with some sparkle spray. This helps to blend the colours together more and also gives a beautiful soft glitter effect. It’s difficult to see in the photos how pretty it is.
Next, I stamped some of the ornaments with embossing ink onto Bristol Smooth card, and heat embossed them with WOW Metallic Silver embossing powder. I used some zig clear colour real brush pens to colour them in, with a water brush to soften the colour.
I die cut some of the Pine Sprigs from white card and white glitter card. I added some colour to the white die cuts with my zig pens, then I adhered them behind the white glitter die cut sprigs for a pretty wintery look.
Before adhering the inked panel to my card base, I heat embossed the greeting from the Decorative Ornaments stamp set. I love the mix of typed and cursive fonts in this greeting.
I added a white die cut Scalloped Frame onto the card, then drew two lines with a silver glitter pen to act as the strings of the ornaments.
I used liquid glue to add the ornament at the back, with some foam tape for the top most ornament to the card. I then added the pine sprigs at the top, to look like branches of a Christmas tree.
To finish, I added some clear sparkling jewels below the sentiment.
