Today I am posting the card I designed for my Quietfire Creations Design Team Blog Post. It is a card using two beautiful stamps designed by Suzanne Cannon from Quietfire Creations.
I fell in love with the Joy stamp which is in the Quietfire Creations Flourished Ornament stamp set. Isn't it beautiful!
To show off this beautiful stamp, I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Dotted Scalloped Oval die set and die cut one of each size ovlas. The ovals were layered, using dimensional tape, so that the edge of each die cut matched at the top of the largest oval. These ovals are very dimensional. Before attaching the smallest oval, I used VersaMark and Ultra Fine Gold Embossing Power to stamp the sentiment. This oval set was attached in the middle of the card at the upper edge.
Two flowers were created using Susan's Garden Notes Poinsettia and Garden Notes Small Poinsettia die sets. Ten pine boughs were die cut using Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone die set. The poinsettias were die cut using white card stock and a brush dipped in bright pink reinker, was brushed down the center of each petal. The poinsettias and pine boughs were arranged at the bottom of the oval die cuts. Gold cording and beads were added around the arrangement. The green background was outlined using Elizabeth Craft Design Gold Peel Off Line Stickers. Two Gold Peel Off Sticker Corners were added at the top. There were some gold pieces left when the Gold Corner Stickers were pulled off the sticker sheet. I used a few of these pieces under the sentiment.
The Quietfire Creations Christmas Waves a Magic Wand stamp is one of my favorite to use on Christmas cards. This sentiment is perfect for anyone. This is the stamp I used on the inside of this card.
In keeping with the ovals on the front of the card, the two largest Dotted Scallop Ovals were die cut. The Christmas Waves a Magic Wand sentiment was stamped using VersaMark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.
I always add an extra piece of card stock to the inside of my cards that is slightly smaller than 6x6 inches. A Gold Peel Off Line Sticker was added to the bottom of the piece. To match the front of the card, two more Gold Peel Off Corner Stickers were added inside.
