It won't be long until we start collecting the dies and stamps we need to use for our Holiday cards. I love working with the stamps and dies designed by Suzanne Cannon from Quietfire Creations.
This is a picture of the new A Way With Words - 4 Seasons die set. I used the Winter die from this set, for this card; it was die cut using black card stock.
This is the Quietfire Design "God Gave Us Memory" rubber stamp. The sentiment was stamped, using black VersaVine ink, on the upper right corner of a piece of design paper.
The flower was created using Susan's Garden Notes Rose 1 die set. Under the Rose, I added pieces of a gunny sack type ribbon and shredded the ends. On top of the ribbon, Pine Boughs were added; these were die cut using Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Bough & Pinecone die set. Both die sets are available from Elizabeth Craft Designs. To create a Winter type card, Faber Castell Whipped Spackle was added to the Pine Boughs. Glue was dropped around the spackle, the rose leaves and on some of the rose petals, then Ranger Distress Stickles - Clear Rock Candy Dry Glitter was sprinkled on.
This card will be perfect for someone with a Winter birthday!
