And here’s what I made today — I kept it simple:
This card is 5.5″ square and will fit into the 5.5″ Square Clear Boxes for both protection and presentation.
The paper I used is the Bo Bunny Double Dot that is now available in 6×6 pads. I couldn’t be happier! These simple dotted sheets work well alone, as I’ve done here today, or can be combined with so many of your other patterned papers. GREAT pads to have on hand, and I’m always partial to dots, so I’m especially thrilled with these pads, shown below. The sheet I used today is from the Very Vintage pad.
My image is this beautiful Wreath by Rubber Soul/Wordsworth, a wood mount rubber stamp. I learned to stamp using wood mounted rubber and I tell you, it still just feels *right* to me — LOL!!!
The image is embossed, but I didn’t have the color embossing powder I wanted, so to get the brownish/coppery color I was after, I first applied VersaMark to my stamp and then I applied VersaFine Vintage Sepia Ink. I then stamped the wreath onto my paper and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. It turned out just perfect! I do have heat guns available, too, if you need one.
I used my Square Nesties to cut the image and layers beneath. I used Mirror Cardstock in Copper. There is just something about Christmas creations that makes me take out the Mirror Cardstock every year! Love the bit of reflective shine it adds.
And, I also went for some ribbon that I seem to pull out each fall as well, the 3/8″ Solid Two Tone in Copper. The colors and texture of this ribbon are just SO RICH. There is a bit of golden glitz — just beautiful, especially for this time of year! I’ll show it to you below.
I went to my this year’s go-to holiday sentiment set – JustRite’s Large Fancy Holiday Sentiments.
You can also see how I wrapped my ribbon around the card front.
And that about does it for today’s card — let me show you the paper and ribbon I used today.
Very Vintage – this is the pad I used on today’s card.
And here’s the ribbon I used today as well:
These colors are SO deep and rich they just make me think of autumn and warm, cozy winter themes. This ribbon is available by the individual color, in a sampler containing all colors, or by the spool.
