As promised yesterday, here is the card I was working on, but didn't finish in time for yesterday's hop. I really love the way this turned out! It's more of the traditional red and green, with a little Pool Party thrown in. This card uses the Sweetest Christmas DSP that I didn't use yesterday - three patterns, in fact!
The candy canes are on one of the sheets of patterned paper and, very conveniently, can be cut with the Candy Canes Dies. Behind the candy canes is a sheet of angled stripe DSP with a piece of Wintry 3D embossed vellum overlaying it to soften the colors. Both layers were cut with a stitched rectangle die.
And behind that is another pattern (in Sweet Sorbet) from the DSP, matted on white before popping up on the card base with dimensionals. I'm really trying hard to not hoard the pretty papers, honest I am!
The mistletoe sprigs were stamped in Garden Green and cut with the matching dies. I added pearls for the mistletoe berries. And, like yesterday's Merry & Bright card, I used some Simply Elegant Trim to add a little shine. I like bows, can you tell? 😁🎀
Ohhh, I just had an idea for another card using this set! Check back on Thursday to see if I can make what I'm envisioning a reality. Fingers crossed!
