It's been a beautiful weekend. We cut our Christmas tree down yesterday from Harmony Hills Evergreens. It is so big and lovely. The kids will decorate it in a bit. Such fun!
Before all the festivities begin, I wanted to share a card inspired by the WPlus9 TBT challenge. The challenge features WPlus9's Iconic Christmas stamp set.
I bought this stamp set over the summer. I fell in love with it when I saw it, and I knew I had to have it.
My card was mostly inspired by this card by Maureen.
I love the all the white with the pop of color in the frame. I typically stay away from white...well because...I'm a messy crafter. Somehow I get ink somewhere on my hand that is in the perfect spot to transfer to anything white I'm working on.
For the frame, I used MFT's Pierced Rectangle dies (since I don't have any from WPlus9) and WPlus9 white cardstock.
The tree was stamped in Last Leaf dye ink. The stars were stamped in Old Gold dye ink. The wreath was stamped in Mojito and Gala Red dye inks.
The sentiment was stamped in Cupid's Bow pigment ink and clear heat embossed.
I stamped over the stars with Versamark ink and clear heat embossed them also.
To add to the scene, I heat embossed the snow flakes with Wow Silver Pearl embossing powder.
To add a bit more visual interest, I stamped the frame with White pigment ink and an Impression Obsession background stamp.
