You wouldn’t believe how long I deliberated over this “stepped-up” version of yesterday’s card.
I would have naturally gone with a monochromatic theme, but I decided to play along with the challenge at Fab Friday. Two of the colors, Tranquil Tide and Mint Macaron, were already being used, so why not add Blackberry Bliss and Cajun Craze?
I began, as I did yesterday, by stamping the sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set on Frosted Floral Designer Specialty Paper.
The largest, scallop edged, Layering Ovals die was used for cutting. I layered this on a second oval, so it would be sturdy when placed on dimensionals.
The card base is the same Tranquil Tide as yesterday, but I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock.
The white layer and the DSP oval were run through the Big Shot with the Subtle Textured embossing folder.
Now, for the additional colors: I shredded a piece of Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine, and taped it around the center of the white layer, making a bow with more shredding.
The Blackberry Bliss berries were cut with a Frosted Bouquet die, and tucked under the oval.
I couldn’t decide what to do with Cajun Craze, until a little bird from Botanical Tags came to my rescue.
If you missed it, here is yesterday’s card: I hope you enjoyed seeing the two versions; it was definitely a challenge! Keep scrolling to see today’s longer shopping list.
Su, this is SO pretty! I love the DSP textured like that, looks so sophisticated! The frayed twine is beautiful, too! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
