This evening I am sharing a quick CAS (Clean and Simple) One Layer card designed using the retired Stampin’ Up! Sets, Bells & Boughs and Christmas Blessings.
I am still working on inking up my retired sets and have always loved this poinsettia image from Bells & Boughs.
I paired it with the Christmas Blessings sentiment (love the font on this set) and will be linking to the Less Is More #407 “One Layer Winter Flora” Challenge, the SUO Challenges #SUOC235 “Fav Holiday Products” and the Simon Says Wednesday “Simon Says:Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will visit the above challenge sites- fabulous inspiration from all!
This card was very easy to create- fold a piece of Extra Thick Whisper White cardstock in half for the card base, de-static with an embossing powder tool, stamp the poinsettia image with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the image has cooled, create a mask and repeat the process for another partial image.
Watercolor using water-based markers (see colors listed below).
Stamp and emboss the sentiment in the same manner and finish off the card with white highlights to the flower centers and shimmer on the petals with a clear glitter pen.
So easy and it will be easy to mail as well :-)
