I am getting into the Christmas mood, music playing constantly, and the tree went up on the weekend. So, it was time to reflect that in my card making. My first Christmas card of the year ...
I used the tutorial HERE to get my artichoke scallop frame for this very vintage chic look.
The base is 5 X 5 and is crumb cake card stock, that was stamped on with En Francious in crumb, but sponged in soft suede. The artichoke layer started out as 4.5 X 4.5, amke sure you DO NOT connect the scallops in the corners if you want the frame look.
The burgundy layer is 3.5 X 3.5 and the crumb cake is 3.25 X 3.25. On the crumb, I stamped the poinsettia and holly boughs in soft suede, masking the poinsettia. I stamped the poinsettia again on crumb and cut it out, layering it with a dimensionals. The images are from Winter Watercolor. The sentiment is from Petite Pairs and I used the burgundy and suede markers to ink it up. The 3/8 taffetta ribbon in espresso was the finishing touch, having the bow come up through the gap in the frame.
Hopefully, you all enjoyed your weekend, have fun and happy stamping !!
