Round About Winter Foliage and Pine and Berry Background for Freshly Made #563

Happy Sunday - again!

With all of my design team cards done for the year, and a little time on my hands today, it was the perfect time to go looking for a couple of challenges.  I found a great sketch across at FreshlyMade

The sketch was the perfect excuse to bring out a new die that I bought as part of the All Wrapped Up release from The Greetery.  As it was also the thankful sale at The Greetery this weekend, I was able to get this beauty 15% off.  I paired it with a background stamp called Pine and Berry - also from The Greetery and some wonderful glitter paper that I got at Michael's this week for BOGO free!

Here's a sneak peek of the gorgeous detail from the die and background:

I'm not normally a shimmery and shiny kinda gal - but I just love this glitter paper.  It's a warm white and almost no glitter comes off when you use it!   Oh, I suppose you would like to see the sketch!

I stamped the background first and used a soft white opaque embossing powder.  I then die-cut the round about winter foliage die twice and layered them.  I used a sentiment from the new Tagged Elegance stamp set and heat embossed that with some fine silver embossing powder.  I layered all these things together and put them on a shimmery white base to tie the focal element to the base of the card.   Here's my card:
In the light the shimmery paper takes on a slightly pinkish tinge, but it really is a warm white.  I love the detail from the embossed background and think this new winter foliage is going to become a firm favorite.
Well, this my third card for today :-)  You can see my two for The Paper Players challenge at this post. I'll be back with another card tomorrow.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a quick lift tonight.
Card recipe:
  • Stamps:  Pine and Berry Background.  Tagged Elegance - sentiment.  Both from The Greetery
