Magic of the Season

Hi! I have one last card to show you from the Gina K release party last week. This one uses supplies from the new StampTV kit, Holiday Cheer and some of Emily Giovanni's fabulous new digital paper, Vintage Holly!

To start, I cut a piece of Pure Luxury White paper into a small rectangle and sponged Pretty in Pink (SU) ink.

Sponged Regal Rose.

Sponged Bravo Burgundy.

Sponged a bit of Real Red to make it just a bit brighter.

Stamped the dove from Holiday Cheer, using black Stazon.

Stamped the snowflakes from A Very Merry Christmas, using Bravo Burgundy ink.

Cut another rectangle, this time sponging lighter, with Pretty in Pink and Bravo Burgundy. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the snowflakes folder, sponged Bravo Burgundy (with a mostly dry sponge dauber) over the flakes for a bit of dimension, and then went drew on the flakes with my Stardust Glitter Gel pen.

I also used the Stardust pen to add dots of glitter to my stamped snowflakes. In the photo, the glitter is showing white, but in real life they look iridescent and so pretty!

I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx, Cranberry Tart, and Vintage Holly digital paper, and a piece of Pretty in Pink (SU). The greeting is from Holiday Greetings (STV Kit) and punched with a 1 1/4 inch circle punch. The scallop circle is cut using Nestabilities. The ribbon is also from the kit.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!
