Pine Wreath Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

I have another sneak peek for you today from Wednesday's One Day Special -

For the background, I spread some Holly Green Sparkle Texture Paste through the Holly Background Mask onto Rich Red Card. Leaving the mask in place, I sprinkled over some Rich Gold Pixie Powder. I removed the mask and cleaned it under a tap and put my background aside to dry (a couple of hours).

I dusted a piece of Milk Card with an Anti-Static Pad. I stamped the CE Pine Wreath Stamp using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Forest CS Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I cut out using die #6 from Sue Wilson's Scalloped Snowflake Frame Die Set. I coloured in a little using Red Star Stardust Pen. I cut die #6 out of Brunswick Green Card and added my stamped die cut on top, offsetting it slightly.

I stamped the sentiment from the CE Santa's Sentiments Stamp Set using Olive Archival. I cut out using die #2 from Sue's Scalloped Snowlake Frame and added it to the centre of my wreath.

Once my background was dry, I matted onto Brunswick Green Card, then Antique Gold Pearl Card and Milk Card.

I cut a pair of pine cones out of Antique Gold Pearl Card and foliage out of Brunswick Green Card using Sue's Pine Cone & Greenery Die Set.

I completed my card by adding some pearls to the central die cut and to the corners of my background.

Thanks for stopping by.
