Winter Foliage Bundle

Hi guys

Today I'm sharing another card I made this Christmas, using some new goodies from The Greetery.  I can't take credit for this design as I saw a few examples from The Greetery where they used these products together and that's what encouraged me to buy them.

I'll get straight to the details...

I began by die cutting a panel with a stitched rectangle die.  I lightly ink blended from the centre using Distress Oxide ink and then laid a snowflake stencil over the top and inked through with white pigment ink.  On some watercolour paper I sprinkled various shades of Brusho pigment powder and spritzed with water.  Once dry I die cut all the foliage.  I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it in gold.  I layered up and adhered all the foliage before die cutting the string tie from gold cardstock and adhering this over the stems.  To finish I added some red Stickles for the berries.

Materials used:
  • Dies: The Greetery - Inside & Out Berry Branch, Fit to be Tied; Create a Smile - Cool Cuts Double Stitched Rectangles
  • Ink: Distress Oxide - Tumbled Glass; Hero Arts - Unicorn; VersaMark; Brusho - Leaf Green, Emerald Green, Dark Brown
  • Stencil: Memory Box - Tiny Snowflakes
  • Stamp: Clearly Besotted - O Christmas Tree 
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Gold Rich
  • Accents: Stickles - Ruby
