So this project was inspired by my coming across the Forever Greenery foil laser cut pack that I hadn’t really used much of and the Expressions in Ink dsp piece that happened to catch my eye when I was putting some stash away … Next thing I knew I was making 9 Christmas cards!
I mean that Green foiled dsp is so pretty and then with those die cuts on top it doesn’t need much so I just stamped and die cut lots of foliage from the Christmas Season set and then a heap of sentiments (some of which I heat embossed) and started clustering them together.
I used a mix of distress inks to stamp using the stamp platform so they were more varied in colours.
I interrupted my crafting to go see Top Gun with the hubby and then came home and finished them off! I also added some twine and ribbon from the stash to add some different textures in.
On this first one I also added small panel of the soft sea foam which I had run through the Fern 3d embossing folder… love the texture on this.
So happy with this set of cards and what a fun little project. It really wasn’t difficult to put them together as the paper and the foil laser cuts do most of the work. I don’t have any of the larger pieces from this set left now … but still have lots of the rectangle panels and some small leaves … but the leaves I am going to keep on my desk for now in a bid to remember to use them up!
