Merry Christmas with Watercolor Winter

Wow time is flying by, I can't believe we are only a week away from Thanksgiving.  Today I wanted to share a card I did, using the set Watercolor Winter 129727.  It is fast and easy with a bit of POP.  I detailed the card front after I stamped it to give it an elegant look.  

I used Very Vanilla for the base (which opens at the top).  I matted it with a piece of Always Artichoke Card stock to give it just a hint of color around the edges.  Next I took a piece of Very Vanilla and stamped the sprig of pine in two opposite corners I used Always Artichoke Classic Ink Pad and for the Pine Cones I used Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Ink.  I ran it thru my Big Shot with the Fancy Fan Texture Emboss Folder ( Just wanted a light texture and thought this worked well).  I cut two Crumb Cake and a Very Vanilla frames from the Apothecary Accents Framelits and I stamped the Vanilla one first with "Merry Christmas" (from Greeting of the Season 128033) in Always Artichoke Ink.  I made a frame from the two pieces of Crumb Cake to be a bit larger than the Vanilla piece.  I used a bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to glue the two pieces of Crumb Cake, once they dried I added the sentiment with snail adhesive and added them to the card front with Stampin Dimensionals.  Also using Dimensionals I added the card front to the base .  I needed a bit more so I added a  Basic Pearl to each side of the label then made a double bow with my Bow Maker and stuck it to the card with a Mini Glue Dot.  I am pleased with the outcome.  Inside the card I stamped my sentiment with Heart of Christmas Stamp128129 and finished it off with another sprig and pine cones in one corner
I hoped you enjoyed my card.  Have a great day and until next time....
Do one thing today that makes YOU happy.
