CASE Study #13

Posted by on November 8, 2010 in Challenges, Christmas Cards, Stamping | 9 comments

This card has taken a few days to complete, but with a bit of thinking and tweaking, this is what I have finally come up with today. It is my entry to CASE Study #13 where the inspiration this week is a card by Heather Pulvirenti.

I used her layout and as she had 3 flowers I used 3 elements as well – baubles from the Hero Arts decorative ornament stamp. So now I can say my Christmas card count is now 2!! Better than none I say!

A close up of the ornaments which I embossed in a red pearlised embossing  powder so in real life they have a bit more of a pearlised shimmery look to them. I raised the babbles using 2 different thickness of foam to create dimension.


Stamps: Hero Arts Decorative Ornament
VersaMark Watermark Ink, Versafine Ink – Onyx Black
Regal Craft Card (white horizontal single fold), white card
Other Supplies:
Embossing powder – enhanced Red pearl, Kaisercraft patterned paper from the Belle Collection – Natalie, Kaisercraft Christmas Stamp (sentiment), white ribbon – thin and medium width, Kaisercraft pearls, felt pen, foam dimensionals, herma dotto adhesive.

Thanks for all your comments recently…it has made my day!
