Hello everyone ! I thought I would post this card today as well. My previous post was for the In The Pink Challenge.
I was excited to receive my order from Chocolate Baroque with their beautiful new Christmas set - Pears & Baubles. Such a gorgeous set that includes a fabulous background design. I ordered it as soon as it was released and couldn't believe it when it arrived in just FOUR days from the UK ! This is not the first time I've ordered from them :) :) :) and they are always fast, but this was very impressive.
I used 3 stamps from the set to create this card. It's a little difficult to capture the colours & embossing in the photo.
I started with the stars & mistletoe background stamp and embossed with gold in two areas. I used Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers Distress with the Acrylic Block technique to create the background. Different colours for Christmas but I love them.
Acrylic Block Technique: Simply add Distress Inks directly to an Acrylic Block (used for cling stamps), spray with water and then 'smoosh' around your page until you like the results.
I embossed the mistletoe and the star bauble twice with gold. I blended the same two Distress Inks again to add colour to the bauble, mistletoe and white sheer ribbon. I cut the centre star from one bauble to pop up in the middle as show below. I cut the mistletoe out and adhered all to the background. I also used a white gel pen to add a little highlight here & there.
