Mistakes will happen when making a card. Sometimes I start over and sometimes I push through. Today I’m going to share how I pushed through my card to create this elegant Christmas card featuring Honey Bee Stamps Elegant Floral Frames set.
You can view the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
I go over all the steps in the video so down below I will go over the main supplies used.
I started by heat embossing the image from Elegant Floral Frames on white cardstock using Gilded embossing powder.
I’m using the coordinating stencil to apply Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany, Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint Distress Ink using blending brushes.
Then I’ll die cut the images out with the coordinating die. Be sure to check the video for a couple mistakes I made at this point and how I fixed it.
To add a little interest to the background, I used the Winter Prism Cover Plates die cut from white cardstock and layered together with liquid glue.
I adore the script in these sentiments from Home For The Holidays. I stamped this one in Intense Black ink and added to the front of the card with foam squares.
If you wanted to add a little drama to this card, I think the Winter Prism would be beautiful die cut from red cardstock.
I really wanted to add some embellishments but to be honest, I had so many small boo-boos at this point, I was scared I’d make another one lol.
Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and be sure to visit the video on how to fix mistakes to salvage your work.
This is super-pretty, Mindy, and I LOVE that background. I hope that sentiment’s tilt was just a one-off, but I definitely agree w/ you…. the “Holidays” was slanted compared to the level “Happy.” Your card is a knockout – splendid!
