STAMPtember – Paper Rose | Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

It’s official, I’ve started making Christmas cards and I can’t seem to stop. The only supplies I have on my desk these days are Christmas (or anything in red, green, blue colors) and all I can think about is what color I’m going to decorate the tree this year. I think it’s a bit too early for all that, but, as we all know the time flies like crazy this time of year and Christmas will be here before we know it.

Today I’m sharing a card made with yet another STAMPtember exclusive collaboration set by Simon and Paper Rose. I have to say, Paper Rose is a very new to me company. I have not heard about them before. I do like their STAMPtember set – pretty poinsettia border and beautiful holiday sentiment. What more can we want?

I heat embossed the poinsettia border twice on light blue cardstock panel using Antique Gold embossing powder. I recently discovered I have 3!!! jars of this powder (no surprise, I do love to use it on every single project). Next, I used my Copics and did some quick coloring.

At first, I picked teal, blue and green colors and have actually colored the small flowers blue, but as I was fussing around with the sentiment and settled on red cardstock I felt this card was lacking red, so I colored over the blue with red markers to turn these poinsettias red. Who knew that was possible? The red ended up being very deep dark and muted red, but I like it.

I also used C1 and C3 markers to outline these images and add a fake shadow. I really love this trick lately. My panel was trimmed to about 5 x 4 1/4″ and adhered to A2 white card base. The sentiment was foam mounted in place. I also added some ink blending around the edges of the panel using Maliblue ink and added a LOT of faux snow using a white Sakura pen. I used the same pen to color flower centers. Finally, Frosted Lace Stickles were used to create additional snow on the card.

Happy stamping!
