Sweetest Christmas


I have another Christmas card to share with you. I'm entering this card to Cure For The Monday Blues challenge as well as PTI Make It Monday challenge.

The inspiration photo for this challenge is shown below.
I created my card based on the gold and silver jewelries, the neutral, pink and light green colors from the picture. I also used the "Gold Dipped die cut" method that Danielle Flanders shared on PTI blog, except that I used some white flower soft instead of a gold embossing powder.

I started by die cutting a white cardstock using a stitched die from Mama Elephant Femme Frames. I then stamped various circle stamps from PTI Polka Dot Basics using Tsukineko Delicata Gold and Silver ink.

For the embellishments, I die cut a mug and the candy canes from PTI Candy Cane Christmas set. I used the coordinating stamp set to stamp the images on the die cuts and added some flower soft on the edge of the die cuts. I also added some gold stickles on the flower soft. To make it more sparkly, I added some sequins.

I simply stamped the sentiment (also from PTI Candy Cane Christmas set) using some Versafine Black Onyx ink.
