This is a record of sorts lately…3 posts in 3 days! I know….crazy! I really am trying to get into gear with holiday crafting and have been spending a bit more time in the craft room where I can. Our sketch designer at Freshly Made Sketches this week is our ever humorous and always amazing Linda Callahan. I won’t lie when I said that at first I was a little stumped on the sketch. And then…..
Then I wasn’t. This card was put together in 15 minutes. I kid you not! In fairness, I had the pieces all done and laying on the table when I had the a-ha moment. I pulled out the scalloped rectangles dies and the rest was just adhesives! Now to the pieces. The background Plaid A2 Foil Plate (Honey Bee Stamps) came about from a foil fail. I was working on another card and rushed the foiling. Patience is not always my strong suit. I do find with background plates that I need to give them just a bit more time to evenly heat up. But I kind of liked the foil distress look and put it aside. Leaning on that idea, I pulled out some Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass. Yep, I love it.
For the bouquet of greenery, I had already put this together using the leftovers from the other card mentioned before. All these Lovely Layers: Winter Greenery pieces are so pretty!! The green pieces are cut from the Make It Merry paper pad (the berries from another lighter paper) and the gold cardstock goes perfectly with the foil. The sentiment is from the Foil Script: Holiday Hot Foil set. I foiled the sentiment all at once so I had this one sitting ready to go. So yeah, I made it in 15 min but only because I had already done the work while goofing around in the craft room.
I’m glad you stopped in today. Take a look around your stamp table and see if you can put some of those unfinished objects (UFOs) to work. And join us over at Freshly Made Sketches too! See you soon!
Oh my friend this card is beautiful! I love that background foiling! That plate just might be on my wish list! Love the greenery and that pretty sentiment too! So perfect for Christmas!
This is beautiful! That gold foil is so elegant! Thanks for making my sketch look so glam!
I love all of the pretty touches of gold on this beautiful card! And that bouquet is fabulous.
This card is a stunner! From the gorgeous hot foiling to the Tumbled Glass to the foliage bouquet – all just perfect!
