First Frost is a wonderful, holiday, stamp set, that is carrying over to the new year. Thank you Stampin’ Up! It’s beautiful foliage and flowers are great for any time of year.
Today, I’m using the First Frost stamp set, and Frosted Bouquet dies, with Laurie’s Paper Players color challenge.
This wedding or anniversary card began with a sturdy framework of a Basic Gray card base, topped with a layer of Smoky Slate cardstock, which I used a Stitched Rectangle die for cutting. The next size smaller, Rectangle Stitched die, was used for the Whisper White layer that I embossed with Layered Leaves.
The plaque was made with two Frosted Bouquet dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White cardstock, and layered it on Smoky Slate cardstock. After adding dimensionals, I placed it on the embossed layer.
I wanted the foliage and flowers to have a delicate look, so I decided to stamp the images from First Frost on Vellum cardstock. The two flowers are Melon Mambo, and the two pieces of foliage are Basic Gray.
TIP: The ink doesn’t dry as fast on vellum, and can smear. Stamp a few extra, so you can test for dryness.
Once the vellum pieces were dry, I used Frosted Bouquet dies for cutting. I used Tombow Liquid Glue for adhering parts of the foliage, and it doesn’t show at all. The flowers are on a single dimensional that I placed in their centers.
I’ll decide the inside sentiment when I know the recipients, because there are several great options for a wedding or anniversary in the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.
The final touch was the row of pearls.
