Here's another card made with the Creative Expressions Tatty Button Poinsettias Stamp set.
The layout of the card follows the current sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday .
It's an A5 card blank. The paper is from Basic Grey from a couple of years ago.
The candle was stamped in Jet Black Archival and then then embossed very quickly with clear embossing powder. I stamped the bottom part of the stamp with the holly leaves a second time. I coloured in using the Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks. I used all mica ones this time. They give a lovely shimmer. I cut the image out using a Spellbinders Circle nestie and inked around the edge with Antique Linen Distress Ink and Cut & Dry foam. I coloured in the extra set of leaves in the same way, cut them out and went around the edges with a black promarker to hide any white bits. I mounted these on top of the full image with foam pads.
I made a poinsettia using the two smallest dies in the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettias die set. I inked them with Black Soot Distress Ink and added some little gems.
The sentiment is from the Creative Expressions Christmas Swirl stamp set. It's been stamped with Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear embossing powder. It's been inked around the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
The card was assembled as per the sketch, piercing around all of the mats with my Tim Holtz ruler. The circle mat was pierced freehand using the embossed edge as a guide.
I wrapped some Cosmic Shimmer ribbon around the card before adding the image which was mounted onto foam pads for dimension. I added a couple of red Craftwork Cards Card Candi which were inked with the Black Soot Distress Ink to tone them in with the rest of the card to the sentiment strip and them mounted it onto foam pads.
