Thy leaves are so unchanging ...
What better line to open today's post? All these Christmas cards are making me sing carols in my head. I had to get them out and what better way than to sing it loud to you guys.
Well, back to my desk and WOYWW. Sorry peeps, but I forgot to take a picture of my work in progress this week, so instead, I'm showing you the card I managed to pull off after a lot of inking. I must say this card gave me some ribbon trouble. I had it lying there for days with ribbons next to it in all shades of blue. Bought even more in different shades today just to end up using a black one. Still not 100% sure, so please, let me know what you think.
Broken China and Antique Linen distress ink
Gold mirri card (at least, that's what I think it's called)
White card stock
Giving Tree stamp by Hero Arts
White Embossing powder by Zing
Ribbon from Hobbycrafts
Rectangle and Scalloped rectangle Nestabilities
Sizzix Big Shot machine
Sizzix Dots and Flowers embossing set
- Die cut a white rectangle panel and a scalloped one from gold card stock.
- Stamp and heat emboss the tree.
- Distress the background with Broken China. I first tapped a bit of ink from my pad to the craft sheet and then diluted it with some water to obtain the light colour you see in the picture. Distress the edges of the card base as well.
- Emboss a panel with dots. Attach a ribbon down the middle
- Assemble everything as shown and embellish with rhinestones.
