Hello Everyone! Today is a bright sunny day. It looks beautiful on the snow we received over the weekend. The sky is not nearly as gray. I feel a bit more chipper today. It is amazing how the weather can change your ambition and mood.
Today I wanted to share a card I made using an old stamp of roses. The name of the company it is from is not even written on it. This card could be used for Valentines Day but I made it for Christmas.
I love how my prima poinsettas accent the actual image. The roses are colored using gamsol, embossed in clear, glittered and layered to give it a 3D look. Of course, I also had to use my nestabilities and cuttlebug embossing tempates to give it extra texture. The pearls, red rhinestones, and red ribbon just give it that extra delicate touch I wanted. The paper is beautiful for Christmas and very hard to find. The local scrapbooking store ran out of this paper very quickly. It is from Scenic Route's Sonoma line. The layers were sewn together with metallic gold thread as well as red.
I hope you enjoyed this post. May you all have a safe and joyous week as the holidays are so quickly approaching.
