Have you already made enough holiday cards? Do you have room for a few more? These cards are fun! Here's the Words of Cheer card:
We will heat emboss the bouquet and color with reinkers/water painters. Remember how much fun we had coloring field flowers? This is similar. I had all my samples heat embossed and colored before I even thought about the card lay out! OH, NOTE: let your colored paper dry before flipping it over to apply adhesive. I didn't and found freckles of color on my card front… pout!
Coloring on watercolor paper compared to coloring on basic white paper is a bit different. Not in a bad way, just different.
Do you notice on the CHEER card above – I added a hint of blue around the bouquet? Ya, I couldn't stop coloring and started getting fancy!
There are dies to make the flower, sprig and leaf. I must say, I didn't realize how cute they are until making this card! Really, zoom in and see how cute?
Christmas Pinecone Beauty Card
I copied this card from Tammy Wilson. She made her card just like these and using Polish Pink as her accent color. I LOVE this card!
Looking around online, many use traditional deep/rich greens for the branches and browns for the pinecones. Those are nice, but something draws me to these colors. Maybe pretending like they are snowy… it just feels luxurious!
It is fun to spice us the card using bling. Just a few will do.
The sparkly shimmery paper is from SAB. If you don't have your own stash, try any of the SU foil papers. The are equally beautiful. Oh, I must admit, die cutting the sparkly paper is slightly challenging. Run it thru a few times. After it's cut, flip it over before removing the die and confirm you have a good cut. It might feel like it's still uncut, but really – it is the detail of this die (the detail pinecones) that might make you think you didn't get a good cut. Watching the video, you will see how to wiggle the detailed pinecone out of the paper.
The card inside – I used 1/3 of the soft seafoam die cut piece. I resisted stamping the greeting in a bold color (the misty moonlight/real red) and used soft seafoam. This monochromatic inside if very calming and elegant. Ya, again, more of those beautiful die cut pinecones.
