I created this card with stamps from Artistic Outpost's Frosty and Friends! Love the retro images!!!
I challenged myself to work with purple on this card. Not one of my "go-to" colors!
I started by stamping this cute little girl with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I watercolored her using Distress Stains as my color palette. I dabbed some stain on my craft sheet and picked up the color with a waterbrush. I like the soft colors.
I cut her out and layered her onto a cream blossom cut with Spellbinders Blossom Tags and Accents and a picot edge circle cut with Spellbinders Picot Edge Circles #4. I used Distress Antique Linen Stain over the picot edge circle. It also has snowflakes stamped on it and embossed with Winter White EP.
On my card front is a mat cut with Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Three (love this shape!) cut from Cosmo Cricket paper. I added Eggplant Distress Stain over it. Then I stamped and heat embossed snowflakes with Winter White EP. That's layered onto a purple mat and then onto a cream card front.
I added lace and seam binding across the bottom. The seam binding was colored with Eggplant Distress Stain. I tied a bow with the ribbon and then added another bow above it.
"Christmas Wishes" is stamped with Ranger Eggplant ink and clear heat embossed. I added some Distress Antique Linen ink over it. I cut a narrow strip with notched ends. It's fastened to the card with a pearl head stick pin. I tucked in 3 little holly accents. These were cut with Spellbinders Holly Accents. I cut apart the border to use just the holly piece. I water colored them using dye ink for color. The berries are dots of Viva Red Paint Pen with Winter White EP over the top. I actually sprinkled it on while the paint was still wet and heated it. The paint held it's shape! The berries look frosted!
