The new challenge is up over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges is up! This one is all about the embellishments! This could be taken so very many different ways! At first, I was going to do a shaker card, and then, as the card was coming together, it ended up being totally different! I love how it turned out, don’t you?
For this card, I started with the window thin cuts. Everything except the shutters have four layers of White Daisy Cardstock, the top and bottom have a layer of Charcoal Cardstock, and the shutters have a layer of Pewter Cardstock. I have a piece of acetate between two layers of the window, so that I could have some “glass” in my window frame!
I ended up stamping on a piece of the Wood Texture Paper (from the Wood Grain Paper Packet, and I love how much depth it gives it! I used two of the little sprigs from the Serenity Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts. and put them on two 1″ x 1″ blocks. I used Sage, Clover, and Evergreen inks for the foliage.
I added red sequins from the Holiday Loose Sequins (that are still available online!) with the , then some of the tiny gold glitter gems on the garland. I decided it still needed a bit more, so I added a few lines with my black .05 journaling pen, then I added the larger gold gems to the end of those lines.
