Evergreen

Challenge #240 – Recipe for Winter Fun

This is my second try in designing a card for this challenge. Somehow during the first one I managed to forget to add PP so I took a leaf out of one of my stampin buddies book and wrote down the requirements ticking them off as I went. I think I managed it this time around. I found some PP that looked a bit like snowflakes coming down and cut it into the different length strips. Before adhering them I inked the bottoms with a bit of green then glued them just at the top of the card front. The die cuts are from a Sissix set of 4 foliage dies and I cut them out of a paint chip, and different scrap pieces of green CS. The holly piece I also embossed before removing it from the die. When I was happy with the layout I glued them together and then added to the strips. I stamped the greeting below using a CTMH stamp and went over it with a glitter pen. Using some snowflake fallouts from a scene die I added them to the card front and glittered them after they were dry. The berries were from a hole punch. I added the ribbon/twine at the top and got the bow tied after a struggle. Honestly I wonder sometimes if my hands work at all, as I can barely feel the twine or ribbon when I’m trying to tie a bow. My hubby likes this card – he said it looks very realistic.

  1. Very, very pretty. Love that greenery tied on with the gold cord. That pp does look like light snow falling and the snowflakes are just the perfect touch.

  3. I love this card Johanna and agree with your husband – the foliage does look very realistic. I love the subtle graduation of colour on your DP and the touch of gold twine the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for sharing over at AYSI this week!
