Besides using the frame I also used pine and cone image and sentiment from another Gina K. Designs set called Peace and Joy by Theresa Momber. I colored in my image and the outside of the frame with my Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers. I found some pattern paper that I thought worked from the Blizzard Paper Pack from Gina K. Designs. Now I happened to have some ribbon that had dots on it and almost matched the stamped dotted red pattern that I added from the Fabulous Holiday Fillers so I used that. The glare from the lighting does not show the dots really well on the ribbon, but if you look closely I think you can see it towards the bottom. And, yes, it is not perfect, but I think I salvaged it quite well. I might have to resort to more paper piecing as I think this is a very lovely look!
I will enter this into the Mix It Up Monday challenge at Stamp TV and also in the Mod Squad Challenge.
Thanks for checking in and hope your Sunday was a great one. Have a wonderful new week too!
LOVE this, Verna!!! I am such a fan of Mel's set too - in fact I just got her two filler sets to go along with the frame. You have really done a good job with the image here. And I really like how you have turned the stamp on it's side - I will remember that! Thanks for the inspiration, well done!!!! And thanks again for playing over at Mod Squad this week!!
What a pretty card, Verna! And I love how you've framed the pine cone. Gorgeous papers too!
Turned out great Verna! Love the ribbon and the Joy
Verna, your last several Christmas cards are outstanding. Each one is special.
Verna, this is absolutely gorgeous! I showed my daughter Alexandra this card and she was like, WOW! That is really nice! Of course I took full credit for your talent, since I am the one who introduced you to rubber stamping! Hahahahahaahahahahaaha!!! I am just kidding, of course. I remember when you first started card making and I must say your sense of color and design have evolved very nicely! Congratulations on another beautiful card!
Don't you just love Mel's designs and how you can make so many different card with the same one? I really need to catch up with you. You have inspired me.
Super card Verna. Shouts Christmas
