Have A Beautiful Blessed Season!


Happy Wednesday!  I have a card to share today using the new inspiration from The Card Concept Challenge.  

This challenge is Festive Celebrations  

Hope you can join us and play along.

 I was inspired by the damask pattern and colors.  I created a clean and layered styled card.

 I started with a piece of select white card stock.  I die cut the panel with Waffle Flowers A2 layers dies.  I used some black acrylic paint mixed with water and a Ranger watercolor brush to add splatters. I used foam tape to add the panel to a top folding select white card stock base.

I stamped SSS Damask Background with versamark onto true black card stock and gold embossed. I trimmed the panel and added black borders.  For the sentiment, I PTI Penned Elegance: Christmas stamp set with versamark and gold embossed

 I die cut the panel using Waffle Flowers Additional Circles die.  I used foam tape to pop it up in the center of the card.  I added two MFT Leaf-Filled Flourish dies(retired) to mimic the detail in the inspiration picture. I finished the card with a few clear sequins.  

Here is a list of many of the products I generally
use every time I make a card.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
