Feathers & Frost is one of the first stamp sets I fell in love with when I first flipped through Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Holiday Catalog. I love the square wreath and the gorgeous sentiments – even the birds in this set won me over a bit (and I’m picky about my bird images). I was so excited about this set that I skipped over it when placing a multiple demonstrator pre-orders in August, assuming I’d already picked it up. Today, I’m sharing my first card with this now-inked-up set – and, of course, I featured the wreath. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Feathers & Frost. The sentiment and wreath are from Feathers & Frost, a fun and versatile set in the Holiday Catalog. I stamped the wreath with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock. Once it dried, I cropped it with the largest of the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and colored the leaves and berries with the Shaded Spruce and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Combos. Here’s a closer look at this finished wreath: Here’s a look at the Feathers & Frost stamp set: How do you resolve “JOY”? Here’s the simple inside of the card:
- All is Bright. The background panel on the front of this card isn’t the most noticeable element of my card, but it’s still a gorgeous element. This textured green-on-green (it appears to be a mix of Call Me Clover and Shaded Spruce is from the All is Bright Designer Series Paper. While most of the pages feature Christmas standards like lights and holly, this page of green provides a gorgeous backdrop for a simple card. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the All is Bright Designer Series Paper:
- A Christmas Mix. Shaded Spruce is a gorgeous, rich green that adds a new element to traditional Christmas colors. You can almost smell the pine in this dark green. I, instinctively, paired it with Real Red (I mean, the berries just needed to be red) and added Pool Party to the mix to soften both and pull (a little) away from the traditional reds and greens. Pool Party goes well with both and pulls them together beautifully. If you like this mix of Real Red, Pool Party and Shaded Spruce, please save this:
