Dynamic Duos.......Warmest Wishes


Happy Tuesday peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the color challenge on the Dynamic Duo Blog.


Love this color combo, I seldom use River Rock card stock, not sure why cos it is nice and looks so pretty here with Always Artichoke. My mind immediately went to this wonderful tree in the Stampin Up "Christmas Lodge" stamp set. I stamped it with Always artichoke onto Very Vanilla card stock.
I then cut it out with the Labels Die. I also die cut one in Always Artichoke and embossed with the Square Lattice EF.


I pulled out some retired Artichoke and River Rock DSP, not sure the names of the pack these came from cos most of my retired DSP is all lumped together in a couple a few folders. :/
The sentiment is from the "Blooming with Kindness" stamp set. I just masked of this portion with a post it note and inked it up with some black ink and stamped onto the Very Vanilla card stock. I hand cut the ends and curled it a bit and added it to the card with some dimesionals in the middle and glue on the ends.
I made a "scrunchy" bow with some Artichoke seam binding ribbon and added an antique brad to the center.
I finished it off with a bunch of basic pearls, on the tree and the corners of the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by and 
HAPPY STAMPING!!!
