Post 345: Holiday Card (Warm Winter Wishes)

Hi friends!

I'd like to share a Holiday Card with you :) This is a standard A2 sized top folding card. I love the warm tones on it. For this holiday card, I created the background by sponging on yellow, orange and brown hued distress oxides through the Icraft bricks design stencil onto a scalloped rectangle die cut. Then I blended some vintage photo distress oxide onto the edges of the die cut to soften the look. The sentiment is a Cutplorations die cut which was heat embossed in white and for embellishment, the holiday green die cuts, half pearls and twine bows were added.

List of Supplies:

Cutplorations Warm Winter Wishes Phrase Die
Sizzix Tim Holtz Holiday Greens (mini) Dies
Winnie & Walter Essentials- Audrey Cutaways
Distress Oxides- Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo & Fossilized Amber
Icraft Bricks Stencil
Ranger's Red Tinsel and Super Fine White Embossing Powders 
White and Chocolate Brown Cardstock
Half Pearls
Snippet of dark Green Cardstock
Ranger's Round Blending tool and foams
Tombow Mono Multi Glue

Here are some photos of the card:

I am playing along with the following challenges:

Cutplorations November Challenge (was inspired by the red berries and creamish tones)
Stamplorations Anything Goes Challenge (used a cutplorations phrase die here)
Addicted to stamps & more #270 (was inspired by the brown hues and xmas decorations)

Thanks for your time :)

  1. Love the festive foliage against the inked wall, a perfect foil for the die cut sentiment.
    Thanks for sharing at CUTplorations. :)

  2. Hi Preeti, what a striking card! I love the way you've sponged that brick design. The brighter, warmer centre makes me think of a warmly burning fireplace. And the scalloped die adds to the warmth. Love the greens at the top and that bold sentiment. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
