Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.
Week 26 – Merry Merlot
The Dove of Hope stamp set and coordinating Detailed Dove dies make gorgeous Christmas cards without too much effort.
The card base is Merry Merlot, embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D TIEF. The Whisper White layer, I scored the border using the Simply Scored, at 1/8″ intervals. This is another great way to create borders without adding extra bulk to your card.
I used a Decorative Mask (oops, sorry this one is retired) but you can use any mask with Blending Brushes. Once I removed the mask, I found it a bit “in your face”, so I lightly brushed over it again to soften the look… much better! The sentiment is stamped in Merry Merlot before I added the dove.
Some Elegant Faceted Gems were added at the very end for a little bling.
