Good Morning all, i hope you are having a good week.
Today im sharing a design made for a family member who lost his wife this year so i didn't want to do a full Merry/Happy Christmas card.
The photo is a bit dark, but its ivory pearlised card that has a leaf pattern in it. I first made an A5 cardblank and then using 2 sizes of the double stitched rectangle dies i embossed them only into the front. I also die cut the candle in the same pearl card. I added a soft layer or cracked pistachio distress ink to just help the candle stand out a bit. I coloured the flame with alcohol ink.
Ivy die cut from left over card that was coloured with Cracked pistachio & Peacock feathers oxide inks, die cut poinsettia with a pearl drop to first. I had stamped the sentiment first and dried it with a heat tool to set.
Close up to show detail.
