"Thoughts of Christmas"

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Okay, so I am focused of Christmas. It usually take me a while to get in the spirit, but this year I'm trying to get a head start.

The card that I have posted today is from the "Penny Black" Christmas series. It's a very Christmasy, if that's a word, and very simple to do.

Here is the card;

"Thoughts of Christmas"

The image was stamped on and ivory cardstock and stamped in a Brilliance "Coffee Bean" ink. The edges were torn and edges with the same ink. I added colored to the pine boughs with Copic markers and added sparkle to the boughs with a clear Spica marker.

The fun part of this card is the flower. It is a stamp set from "Heartfelt Creations" from a set called "Lily Petals". What makes it so easy to use is that they also sell a matching Spellbinder set that works with this stamp called "Perfect Petals". Very easy to do, no cutting by hand. The flower was made up of two petal sizes, six of each size. After they were stamped and cut, I curled the petals slightly. After assembly the flower was sprayed with Glimmer Mist.

One other fact is that the card is a center fold.

Hope you enjoy todays posting, and leave a comment.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Great card Bob!! That time of year is right around the corner again. I've been delaying making them because I am hoping that will also delay when it first snows for the season! lol

    Ooooh, I love your card. The poinsettia is gorgeous and "perfect petals"! I love seeing your work. I'm so glad I joined the Frugal Scrapper group or I would never have had the pleasure of seeing your beautiful cards!

    Lovely card. I especially love the poinsettia, those Heartfelt Creation stamps & dies are great. Got a cardinal set at the Anderson convention last month. Thanks for explaining the 'how-to'.

    Bob, your flowers and branches are beautiful. I really love the glittery effect. I have got to have both of these, the flower and the spellbinders.
