Frosted Foliage for Global Design Project


My Holiday Catalogue Pre-order arrived on Wednesday and last night was the first time I had to play with some of my new products! And so it begins - the first of many Christmas cards this season!
This one is created with my favourite of all the bundles in the new Holiday catty - the *Frosted Foliage bundle. I think it's actually the *Frosted Frames dies that I like, but matched with the new *Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper, which I did not use here. The reason that I didn't was that I wanted to enter a challenge today. It's been soooo long since I had a chance. (Make sure you hear the whine in my voice, when you read that!!) The challenge that I decided to enter is a colour challenge by the Global Design Project.


That's why I had to use a different Designer Series Paper, because the *Feels Like Frost doesn't come any of these colours predominantly! Instead I went with the equally beautiful *Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper, which has copper accents in it. I chose one piece of Pretty Peacock DSP for the background, and another flip side with no copper in Mossy Meadow for the band across near the bottom.

  • Isn't this just sumptuous? The die cut frame (in copper to match the accents in the DSP) is from the *Frosted Frames Dies. It comes out so pretty no matter what you cut it from! 
  • There is a matching middle piece you can die cut to stamp your sentiment or focal image on. Here I used a sentiment from the *Frosted Foliage cling stamp set and stamped it in Merry Merlot.
  • I added some rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones (in Pretty Peacock) and I coloured a couple of small regular rhinestones with a Mossy Meadow Dark Stampin' Blends Marker and added them to the front.
  • I had tried other designs and layouts, but ultimately, simple worked best for this card. This will make a good design now for my Christmas Buffet Card Class coming up at the end of the month now.
