Warm Wishes

Hi there!
Today I have a rustic-inspired card and matching tag.  As soon as I saw the Wedding Ring Quilt Mesh File (RM00118), I knew it would be the perfect background for a card using Kraft stock.

I dry brushed some white acrylic paint onto the base and the die cut and then adhered them together.  I stamped cute little snowflakes (SP & Company's Christmas Medley Set) on the 'open' areas in white ink.  But after I had the sentiment (SP & Company's Cutest Gingerbread Man Set) and banner all cut out and ready to go, it felt like something was missing.  I knew it needed a poinsettia and I also happened to know that there is an amazing 3D Poinsettia Set in Sharon's store (RM00107).  So, I cut the poinsettia out on the Silhouette, using vellum.  I used some Copics to give the centers some color and then I dipped the edges of the flower in red glitter.

For the tag, I did the same steps and techniques as the card, I just did some of the things on a smaller scale.

The banner is the same as the one above, but I actually folded the middle over so it would be the size I needed.  :-)  I added some button twine for the finishing touch and voila! DONE!

Thanks for stopping by today!
