Happy Tuesday Peeps!
I had a little bit of time this morning to play, so I decided to check out the color challenge this week on Splitcoast.
Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Lost Lagoon. Not your traditional colors for a Christmas card but since I had this set, Joyful Christmas, out I decided to use it. I love this color combo!
I started by stamping my Poinsettia onto some watercolor paper a couple of times, I also stamped three leaves to color as well. The flower was colored using only calypso Coral ink. The leaves are colored with Old Olive. I cut out the poinsettia base and then the second layer is the same flower just cutting off the outside leaves of the flower. I added the center to the base with a dimensional. I glues the three leaves around the bottom of the flower.
The base of the card is Old Olive card stock, then a layer of white. The next is Lost Lagoon that I embossed with the Snow Burst EF. I was originally going to make my card a 5 inch square but then realized I could not emboss the Lost Lagoon piece fully, so I just trimmed it down a bit. The card is now a 4-1/2 inch square.
I added some retired white satin ribbon across the bottom and tied a bow. The sentiment is from the Endless Wishes stamp set and is stamped with Black Memento ink onto a scrap of the water color paper and then curled and added to the base. I finished this card with some gold pearls, non SU, in the flower center and the top corner.
Thanks for stopping by today!
