Good Day Stampers!
She, to her credit put a lot of time and effort in this card which I don't think the pic's from yesterday showed. So here are a couple of close up's of the fine details.
Ahh! Mr. Twigster ( a retired set) fit the Embossing frame exactly and was perfect for the scale of this card. The edges around the frame were gilded with gold embossing powder and looked very antiquey.
Another look at the fire place. The logs were a nice touch and the #119976 Square Lattice embossing folder looks like brick. Her flames are hand done and sponged. And if you look close there is even a strip on the bottom of the fire place that looks like the hearth stone. Love it.
So Colleen although you "lost" the card contest your little heart can un-shrivel because I loved what you did. I honestly think if I hadn't done the inside you would have won.
And now on to another subject. This pic shows the gift box I decorated to put one of Colleen's gifts in. I gave her the new Dazzling Details in Cherry Cobbler that is in the new Mini out and active on Jan 4th. Some of you may have received this in the mail today.
I used the Kraft boxes that were in the Holiday Mini. Love them and I so hope they keep them for awhile. I used the Holly Berry DSP and the #121812 Fun Flowers die for the big shot. I sponged Champagne Shimmer Paint on the edges of the flower and ran some of the layers through the Big Shot using various embossing folders. The leaves I made using French Foliage and Clear embossing powder.
This was a Christmas Card I made using the Come to Bethlehem stamp set. LOTS of sponging here!
