Hello December! So happy to start celebrating this most wonderful time of year. Today the Papertrey ink Sr. Design Team members are revisiting the In the Meadow stamp set...it's a beauty and one I just love. My first card uses this set and coordinating dies to create a Christmas card, the second card is more of a winter card, just to show the versatility of this set.
I pulled out my vellum for both of these cards as vellum lends itself so well to this winter-y, white time of year. For this first card I used Kraft cardstock as my base and stamped snowflakes and the snowman from the In the Meadow stamp set directly onto the base using watermark ink. I then embossed the images using Winter Wonderland embossing powder from Stampendous. The sentiment on this card is from the Peaceful Pinecones stamp set.
I then cut a piece of vellum to fit the front of my card and embossed it using the Peace Be Still Impression plate. I stitched the bottom and sides to secure it to the card but left the top un-stitched so I could add some mica flakes behind the vellum to create a shaker card of sorts and add more softness. Then I stitched up the top and layered on the toppings including a vellum and cardstock die cut tree from the In the Meadow Silhouettes die collection. I stamped sentiments from the In the Meadow stamp set using Classic Kraft ink across the front of the die cut tree and then layered on the vellum bending up the sides slightly to give it dimension. I then used pattern paper and the Holly Jolly die to bring in color and more dimension on the tree. It's finished off with a Pure Poppy button, button twine, and vintage trim.
This card uses more soft neutrals and vellum to create a wintertime scene. My focal point here being the deer cut from the In the Meadow Silhouettes die collection using cork....such a fun element to use.
The other Sr. Team members have projects ready to share with you as well:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
