I'm back with Mailable Monday. Didn't post one last week due to
my daughters birthday.
These colors are a little different for Christmas.
The base card and stamped layer is Smokey Slate.
Stamp set Reason for the Season. I like being able to use
one stamp set to complete a card. This set comes with three different greetings.
This stamp set is three steps. I did the bold image first with Real Red, then the
detail layer in black, and lastly Old Olive ink for the leaves.
I wanted more pop, so I stamped the bold image and detail layer on another
piece of Smokey Slate then cut it out and placed over the stamped image
using a pop dot. I then used a white gel pen to add some detail on the petals and leaves.
The stamped panel was layered on white and adhered to the card with pop dots.
I also added a strip of white organza ribbon. This ribbon is great for mailing as
its flat and doesn't really need a bow or knot. Just cut a v shape on each end and
its ready to mail.
Here is a side view so you can see how the flower is layered.
