The trend with many cards this year is warm, rich colours; I decided to follow this with a thank you card.
Used: Winter Berries 4273K, Diamond Pattern 40-169, Big Thanks 107D (sorry after using this stamp I realised it had been discontinued) and Summer Sun 17-002.
* Using the direct to paper technique ink a piece of white card with Seedless Preserves distress ink.
* Stamp and emboss diamond pattern with Wow glitter powder, emboss summer sun with an embossing folder (I think this one is a Sizzix one) and distress raised areas with Wild Honey distress ink.
* Cut a circle with Spellbinders Circle die and stamp tree with Vintage Sepia ink. Add red stickles and various colours of liquid pearl dots to the tree. Add a twine bow to the trunk.
* Stamp greeting and cut using spellbinders label (tip: to get the V both ends just turn around the card and run through the machine again).
*Adhere all elements to card blank and cover joins with ribbon.
I have a few more last minute Christmas cards to share with you this weekend before the big day, so until my next post .........
