First up, I have a card and gift card holder ensemble to share.
I began with the card, so let's start there!
I sponged Aqua Mist ink onto a Rustic White card base and die cut it with the falling snow insert in the new Mix & Mat: Berry Boughs die. Next, I die cut a frame from the Bitty Big: Pure Poppy paper using the Cover Plate: Delightful die.
Next, I stamped and die cut the onion-shaped bulb from Brilliant Baubles. I also stamped and die cut several of the foliage elements as well as the bow. I used a piece of DMC floss to add a hanger for my ornament to the front of the card and then adhered the plaid frame using foam tape.
Then, I layered the flowers, leaves, and bow on the ornament for a dimensional embellishment. Lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment from the new Keep It Simple: Winter Wishes set onto a Pinefeather banner I cut with my new Wine Bottle Tag #2 die (more on that very soon). I adhered that banner to the frame to finish up the card.
On the back flap, I stamped a sentiment from my new Gift Card Cozy Sentiments stamp set.
Next up, I have a project using that new Wine Bottle Tag #2 die I mentioned a moment ago. I've truly enjoyed making pretty wine bottle tags using the original die for years now, but I thought it might be nice to have another option when it comes time to dress up a gift. The new tag is a little bit wider, has a stitched border detail, and comes with two banners ideally sized to fit a majority of the sentiments in the Keep It Simple series.
Next, I have another gift card holder to share. I wanted to show how great the botanicals in Brilliant Baubles can work for non-holiday purposes. Most of the flowers and leaves don't scream "Christmas" so they're great for year-round use.
I added the flower to the gift card holder with foam tape and then tucked the foliage in around it, securing the ends with tape. This color combo would be great for a birthday or Mother's Day gift, don't you think?
And last, but not least, I have one more Brilliant Baubles card to share.
Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you've enjoyed today's post. Make sure to pop in with Nichole as she shares more of Brilliant Baubles and Heather as she shares another of my sets for this month, Very Merry. I told you I had a lot to share! Betsy also has a few sneak peeks to share, so you'll definitely want to check in on her, too. Have a great day, everyone, and I'll see you back here tomorrow!
