PCCCS112 – Season’s Greetings

By | October 3, 2014

Happy Friday, hope you had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend.  I’m sitting on my porch enjoying the evening air waiting for the rain storm to start. Today was in the 70’s and Saturday is expected to be in the  low 50’s for the high – talk about a change in weather.

For todays card I am completing the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #112, and yes it is similar to a more recent challenge.  For my card for this one, instead of word bubbles, I used trees. Here is the sketch. PCCCS106-160-003-300x300

For this challenge, as soon as I saw the design, I knew what I wanted to do – Blackberry Bliss and Silver Embossing.  The card is a 5″x5″ square out of Whisper White cardstock, layered with a piece of Blackberry Bliss (my favorite new In-Color).  I used a few of the stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to create the background, which is heat embossed in silver.  The trees are from the Festival of Trees stamp set, with matching tree punch.  Two trees are heat embossed in Crushed Curry and Pool Party, the third is stamped in Blackberry Bliss, Stampin Dimensionals are behind the Pool Party tree.  In my forest there are no basic green trees. Greeting is heat embossed in Crushed Curry.   Silver Glimmer hearts and Candy dots act as accents for a little bling!

    Great card! Love the bold colors of the evergreens along with the embossing on the Blackberry Bliss with the silver. Look for your card to be featured on the Featured Artisan Blog post.
