This was my ‘must have’ Christmas set as soon as I saw it in the new catalog this year. I just love the open ‘loopy’ look of the images. (Shhhhh….don’t tell…this is the set that I’m featuring for my card set this week on Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions!). I thought this set would be just perfect for the color challenge on SCS today to use Cherry Cobbler, Older Olive and Whisper White with a dessert option of silver.
Just a few quick notes on this…the base of the card is Shimmery White (oh…this is just SOOO pretty in real life!). I took another piece of Shmmery White, ran it through the Lacey Brocade Embossing Folder, layered on Cherry Cobbler then added to the card base using dimensionals. I cut some banner from a piece of the Cherry Cobbler/White print in Snow Festival and a silver glimmer banner (these using the Bitty Banner framelit, then cut a piece of the Old Olive Scalloped ribbon for my third one. I added these to the card front. I cut a piece of watercolor paper using the Apothecary Accents framelits, stamped the poinsettia using StazOn Jet Black, colored with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive markers (and a blender pen) and added a silver glimmer brad on top. I added a piece of the Old Olive Scallop ribbon along the side and added the to card front using dimensionals. I stamped the greeting using Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler markers, cute with the wide oval punch, layered onto a Cherry Cobbler Decorative Label then to the card front. Oh…such a pretty Christmas card!
