Frosted Bouquet

 

I used the largest, plain, Layering Circles Die to cut the circle from Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I used  the largest, scalloped, Layering Circles Die to cut the border from Smoky Slate Cardstock.

Next, I embossed the Whisper White circle with the Subtle Textured Embossing folder, and glued the two together.

“Merry Christmas” is from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set. I stamped it in Smoky Slate Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting.

 

 

The flowers, leaves and sprigs were made with the First Frost Stamp Set, and Frosted Bouquet Die Set. I stamped the flowers in Lovely Lipstick Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and used the two dies for cutting.  The leaves were cut from Old Olive Cardstock, and the sprigs from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

For the background, I embossed Whisper White Cardstock with the Scripty Embossing Folder, and layered this on a Thick Whisper White card base.

 

Before gluing the bouquet together, I gave the leaves extra sparkle, using two, new products from the Holiday Catalog. First, I spread Shimmery Crystal Effects over the leaves, followed by a sprinkling of Ice Stampin’ Glitter.

Today’s card was inspired by two challenges. The colors are from Global Design Project. 

And, my layout is from Fab Friday.
