Stamping Sunday Blog Hop First Frost card from theartfulinker.com

 

For this First Frost card, I turned to Christmas

(I’ve been making everything else but…).

To start, I used a Tranquil Tide card base with a

Gray Granite layer cut to form a tight mat.

On the Whisper White layer, I stamped berry clusters in

Merry Merlot.

Then, I stamped the long greenery in Tranquil Tide and cut it out

with the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.

I love how the texture in the stamped greenery compliments the

texture in the Joyous Noel designer paper!

Tip: To get the best results from these stamps, less ink is better.

If your ink pads are currently juicy, try adding ink to

these stamps with a sponge dauber or ink spot.

Over my stamped background, I added a strip of

Joyous Noel specialty designer paper.

Then, I have a square of Copper Foil Paper.

For the sentiment, I used a First Frost stamp inked with Versamark

and then embossed with copper.

To cut the sentiment layer and it’s mat, I used dies from Frosted Bouquet.

Favor or Small Gift

For my second creation, I made this Christmas favor or small gift box

that features the sentiment.

To create this box, bag, favor…

I used the Gift Bag Punch Board.

Let me know if you’d like dimensions and I’ll pop them in the first of the week.

For my layer, I used the same design elements are on my card above.

And, the layered Frosted Bouquet tag was perfect to finish

the simple look of this piece.

The footprint of this favor makes it an easy one to add to

your holiday celebrations.

      Thanks so much Ashley! Combining Merry Merlot with Tranquil Tide makes me think I may miss Tranquil Tide when it retires at the end of May

      Thanks so much Manuela! When I create for Christmas, I’m always thinking “can someone make lots of these”. This card fits that bill.
