To start the holiday season, I created a festive card for a December birthday, using Distress Inks and Emerald Creek Embossing Powders, for the Winter Wishes Blog Hop with Eileen Hull.
The colors were inspired by this beautiful palette used for the November Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com.
I made the background by smooshing Distress Inks (Pine Needles and Evergreen Bough) onto white cardstock, and embossing the snow and snowflakes with Emerald Creek (Enhanced Ivory Pearl) EP. Then I tore around the edges, and embossed them with (Soft Fallen Snow)EP.
The main image, sentiment, and edges of the card base, were embossed with EC (Charred Gold) EP. Then I colored the wreath with Distress Inks and a couple of Lindy's Sprays.
The strip of lace was embossed with EC (Enhanced Ivory Pearl), along with the dots of the pink background, colored with Distress Ink (Victorian Velvet). Then I added beads to the wreath, along with a few Pine Cone Charms, lightly embossed with (Soft Fallen Snow) Embossing Powder, and strung with green fiber.
Thanks for looking!
Embellishments: Pine Cone Charms
