Happy Tuesday! I’m sharing a throwback post from last year- and as luck would have it, all the main elements I used on my card are in stock & available from SNS today!
Today’s card will probably seem very non-traditional, but it really depicts the kind of winter I see most of the time since I’ve moved south to North Carolina! I’m featuring the new Tim Holtz Festive Words dies paired with Cardinals dies by Impression Obsession over a background of Sketch Greenery stamped in assorted shades of green Distress Ink. I used a mix of regular & oxide inks, misted with water on watercolor Cardstock to create a soft background.
My photo background is also the inspiration for the background of the card. I went to a wreath making workshop with a friend and was able to use a large variety of different greenery to create a gorgeous fresh wreath for the holidays. I love the mix of textures and colors together!
There’s a touch of shimmer mixed with all the earthy vibes, like a hint of fresh snow… with white pearlescent text and sequins scattered around. Two of the cardinals are resting on the greeting while the third one, taking flight, is raised with a foam square.
I had a small piece of the background left after making my card, so I made a coordinating gift tag using the smaller ‘joy’ sentiment from the set. I love the mix of the elegant background and the whimsical font of the greeting together!
I hope you like it! I sure had fun making them!
