Sparkle N Sprinkle released a wonderful Christmas set a short time ago called Christmas Holly. I have had it sitting on my craft table, hoping to have some time to use it. I love the lamp image and used it, along with the With Love At Christmas sentiment.
For the card background I used a variety of die cut, inked, distressed, and embossed layers of decorative cardstock.
The image is stamped and heat embossed with Cappuccino Embossing Powder on white cardstock covered with Tear-ific tape and Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter three times, then colored with alcohol markers. I cut out the full image one time and then cut out the second image without the glass lamp shade and layered these with dimensionals. I cut out the flowers only from the third image and added them to the layered image, once again using dimensionals. This is all added to the center of card front.
The sentiment heat embossed on decorative cream cardstock and colored. I added a little Sparkle embossing powder to the berries and leaves, using a Versamarker, to give them a little sparkle and shine. I die cut this with a large ribbon banner die from Spellbinders, using the center section only. The edges are inked and distressed and the whole banner is curved and curled to give it dimension and added to the card with a combination of glue and dimensionals.
I had these little floral berry branches so I add a little color and glitter to the petals and berries and tucked them around the sentiment, along with a few fussy cut glittery leave left over from layering the lamp image.
