The inspiration for this card started with Tsukineko’s tri-color Christmas themed ink pad called, Noel. It has red, gold and green on one pad! Then I was excited to discover how to create a Poinsettia with a flower stamp and a silhouette from a clear stamp!
I used Layers of Color Nature Walk art stamp with Noel ink to create the designer paper, I ran it through Swiss Dots dry embossing folder, and then lightly dragged the Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink pad over the top of the raised dots. I dry embossed vellum and enhanced it with the gold as well. The black/white ribbon is 7 Gypsies Gaffer tape.
To create the silhouette, I stamped Layers of Color Reindeer Waltz art stamp onto black paper, cut it out and turned it over so that it becomes a silhouette. I placed it on an oval of brown paper that was dry embossed with dots and inked over with black ink on the raised dots and along the edge.
The flowers were made with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink on red paper using Layers of Color Nature Walk art stamp. I cut them out, bent the petals and stacked them so that they created Poinsettias. The center is black Fun Flock.
The snowflake is a cuttlebug die and the center is an upholstery tack with the nail cut off the back. I used Martha Stewart’s edge punch on black paper for the lacy edging.
I enjoyed making this card and sharing it with you today! I hope you’ve learned how to add Layers of Color to your cards!
May God bless you and your creativity this week!
