I decided to create my own background pattern to come up with another Christmas card.
And now that I look at the sketch, I notice that I didn't follow it totally, putting the flowers a bit higher than the sentiment. Doh!
My background was made by white-embossing various images onto a panel of Soft Stone cardstock, then die-cutting with a stitched edge die.
The sentiment was cut from gold foil because my Mini Minc up and died on me - after nearly asphyxiating me with the smell of burning plastic! Back to the shop it went and I'm waiting on another one to be sent to replace it.
I stamped the ponsettia and leaves using Altenew inks then die-cut them out and colored them with clear Wink of Stella.
All in all a pretty simple card.
Thanks for stopping by! The rest of the design team have created some gorgeous cards with the sketch, and I hope you'll have a go too.
