Allsorts Challenge 546: Christmas Flowers

This post includes affiliate links, meaning I may earn a small commission if you purchase something through the links, at no cost to you! Thank you so much for your support!

Hello and thanks so much for visiting! It's time for a new theme already at Allsorts challenge. Mervi is hosting and she would like to see "Christmas Flowers". Hope you can play along with us for a chance to win our prize, this week we have a prize by The Paperbox 

I don't have a lot to choose from when it comes to Christmas flowers, I only have an old Stampin Up wheel I used last year when we had a similar challenge. But I did find this vintage themed pattern paper in my stash and decided to use it along with a cute stamp from Penny Black from the set Deck the Halls.

Related Products:

I heat embossed the image using my usual Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and clear embossing powder then watercolored with regular distress ink pads (not the oxides). The edges were inked with Old Paper Distress ink and I distressed the edges with a distressing tool, but this can be done by running the blade of a pair of scissors along the edge, then mounted onto a scallop circle diecut (Nestabilities Die). I distressed this scallop circle as well.  

The background was stamped with Penny Black' background stamp Christmas Story  using Old Paper ink again, and I also distressed these edges. The sentiment from the Penny Black set Holiday Snippets was stamped and heat embossed using the same Versafine ink and embossing powder again and I tied a bow using gold cord to finish it off. The card base is one of Stampin Up's brown papers, I no longer keep track of their colors so I have no idea what this color is actually called (I now sort them by color themes instead of actual name of the colors - much easier since they tend to retire and bring new colors all the time. It was too hard for me to keep up with them all.)

A little closeup's hard to tell but I added a little bit of golden glitter to the poinsettia flower centers. Meant to add crystal effects to the red berries to make them shiny but it's all dried up so I used a Sakura Stardust glitter pen on them.
