Hey everyone! Happy Monday! It feels so good to be back in my scraproom! Last week my sweet husband was kind enough to share his flu bug with me, so I pretty much was down for the count for the last 6 days. It was not a pretty site! lol Today I wanted to share a card using this week’s Product of the Week, the Winter Woods Bundle and there’s even a little bitty sneak peek in there for some new product. Do you see it? 🙂 Here are the measurements for the card:
- Card base in Merry Merlot cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Early Espresso cardstock cut at 4″ x 3 1/2″ and 1 1/8″ x 2 1/2″
- Very Vanilla cardstock cut at 3 7/8″ x 3 3 3/8″
When I first got my Holiday Catalog, the birch tree image in this set just caught my eye. And the funny thing is, this is the first time I’ve used the image! I pulled out my Stamparatus to stamp the image repeatedly, which is the only way I could have stamped multiples so evenly! Then I cut a piece of Early Espresso to mat it on. Next I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink and cut it with *ahem* **wink wink** one of the stitched rectangle framelits. It fit perfectly! Then I mounted it on the Early Espresso layer. (did you catch the sneak peek there? lol) I grabbed a piece of the Merry Merlot/Copper Ribbon, which sadly has retired, and wrapped it around the birch layers and tied it in a knot, then adhered it to the card front. I added some dimensionals to the sentiment layer and added that to the card front. I added three of the littlest pearls to the side and called it done. Isn’t it a striking card? I know it might be a little dark for some, but I love the Merry Merlot with Early Espresso, it’s so rich!
I hope you liked today’s card. Fortunately this bundle is carrying forward, but starting on January 3rd, you will no longer get the discount on the bundle pricing. If you want to pick this up now to get your discount, just head over to my online store. When you place your order using Hostess Code 33MPUNSP, I’ll send you a pack of handmade cards. If your order is $50.00 or more, I’ll include a free gift from me. Everyone loves getting happy mail!! Those stitched rectangles will be coming out on January 3rd with the Occasions Catalog, and I’m sure they are going to be a hit! I can’t wait for you to see all the fun spring items that are coming!! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic evening!
