Hello and welcome back! The Concord & 9th Beautiful Branches stamp set is so versatile that can be used in any season and for any occasion. I love winter berries so it was the perfect chance for a wintery Christmas card.

 

First, I stamped the branches with dark brown ink. I then blended Broken China Distress Oxide ink to the background and added a few droplets of water to help it oxidize.

I continued by stamping the berries that are included in the stamp set, using dark red ink. For the snow effect, I splattered copic opaque white here and there. Of course I had to add Nuvo Morning Due Crystal Drops on all the berries.

For the sentiment, I white heat embossed it on a piece of vellum that I then die cut with a stitched circle die. I added dots of multy medium adhesive behind the embossed letters and adhered it onto my panel. Everything was then foam mounted onto a light grey card base.

You’re definitely going to see me using this stamp set over and over.

Well, this card is my enter for the Where Creativity meets C9 challenge #16: Anything Goes
