Hello friends and greetings on this lovely Friday! I have another pretty Christmas design to show off to you that’s a snap to create. I started with the lovely Bottlebrush Holiday from Power Poppy. I stamped it in white craft ink and embossed it in white embossing powder. Then I took some ink and lightly watercolored the trees keeping that mono-chromatic feel to them. Then I took my cues from the baubles on the trees and added sparkly rhinestones in the spots that Marcy drew them. Isn’t the font for the sentiment great? So vintage feeling.
The papers are Bo Bunny Candy Cane Lane. I love the bokeh effect of the background paper. Did you know that it’s actually said “bo-kay”? I learned that in my photography class this fall. I mistakenly thought it was bo-kuh but I was wrong. There’s your interesting tidbit for the day.
For accent I wanted something really streamlined so I cut a paper bow with my Silhouette Cameo and added that to the front of the design as well as some pretty teal velvet ribbon.
Here’s the inside with a little tree and the sentiments.
Now some of the other fabulous girls from the Bloom Brigade are going to show off their creativity to you. And then please jump on in and play along with us in our Power Poppy Peep of the week challenge!
