I'm using stamps from the brand new Quietfire set - Flourished Ornament. A gorgeous set that includes an ornament and 3 different flourished words that will fit inside. The words can also be used without the ornament making this a set that works all year long.
The ornament is stamped onto white cardstock with embossing ink and embossed with Queen's Gold powder. "Joy" was stamped with embossing ink and embossed with red geranium powder. I used Distress Ink cracked pistachio along with water and a paint brush to add color to the inside of the ornament. A gold brad and gold string create a hanger.
The red frame is an Elizabeth Craft Designs die - Fitted Frames 2, Lace Squares. I cut it from soft finish cardstock backed with double sided adhesive, inked it with Archival Ink red geranium, and adhered to the white cardstock leaving a border around the frame.
For the next layer I began with Ranger's glossy cardstock, stamped one of the snowflakes from the new Quietfire set - Let it Snow Snowman with Ranger's resist ink repeating until I had enough snowflakes. Next I inked over the piece with cracked pistachio (no need to ink the center) adding enough ink to bring out the pattern of the snowflake. I then flicked some water over the piece, blotted it and dried it.
I attached the main panel to the green panel with foam mounting tape, wrapped the hanger to the back and taped it down. This was then attached to the 5 1/2" folded white card.
Finally I added the 2 dark green flourishes. These are a die from the Elizabeth Craft Designs set - Flourishes & Branches. I cut them from soft finish cardstock backed with double sided adhesive. The backing paper was removed and silk microfine glitter - forest green - added to the adhesive rubbing it down well. I attached the flourishes with glue leaving the ends loose.
