Just Add Ink #421

August 14, 2018

Today’s card is loosely based on the sketch challenge at Just Add Ink this week.  I have a friend who owns the Eastern Medallion Thinlits Dies and I like to find ideas for her to use them.  I started by embossing a piece of Whisper White card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.   The embossed card is attached to Real Red card and then to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I stamped “Merry Christmas” from the Star of Light stamp set onto a narrow strip of Whisper White card using Real Red ink.  The greeting is attached to a strip of Real Red card and then the card front.  I cut the large medallion from Real Red card using the Eastern Medallion Thinlits Dies and a circle die from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  I cut a smaller circle from Gold Glimmer Paper using the same Layering Circles Framelits Dies and attached it to the centre of the medallion.  I cut two of the “flower” pieces from Real Red card.  If you cut the piece it is still attached around the “centre”, a quick snip and it comes free.  I used my bone folder to give the petals a little dimension and attached one flower on top of the other.  The flower is attached to the centre of the Gold Glimmer paper I punched a 1/2″ circle of Gold Glimmer Paper and attached it to the centre of the flower.  The whole medallion is attached to the left hand side of the card front.

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a narrow strip of Real Red card to one long edge of Whisper White card which I embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

I think these two colours together the Red and the Gold make this card really Christmassy, even though the dies used are not really for Christmas, don’t you think?

Bye for now,

Kris

    Lovely Christmas card – especially love the glitter paper. The die cut looks so pretty and delicate against the white card. Chantell Just Add Ink

    It’s a very Christmassy colour combo! The touches of gold are fabulous with the red. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Add Ink.
