Two of my favourite stamp sets from Chocolate Baroque - Bold & Fresh Blooms are on special this week. I decided to to create a Christmas card using these designs as it's never too soon to get started on them right?
I stamped & embossed the flower (five times) & the leaves with gold on Basic Grey Paper that was hanging out in my stash, I think it's from the Wassail collection.
I'm not sure if it's called paper piecing or decoupage but I cut the flowers & layered as shown. I added a metal flower & pearl at the top. I stamped the mistletoe fragment from Pears & Baubles with Black Soot Distress Ink on the background. I painted some of the design on the leaves with Vintage Mica Paints. Noel is a clear stamp and this is the first time I've used it !
I decided to add gold around the edge of the background with a gold leaf pen after the card was assembled. NOT a good idea, it ended up wobbly, certainly not as straight as I would like.
Here is a look at the two stamp sets that are currently on special. They are sold individually or with a multi-buy discount if you purchase them together. I especially love the leaves.
I'll be back soon with another Peacock Design!
Thanks for stopping by,
