New catalogue countdown, day 2


This is one of my favourite samples with new catalogue products – and yet it’s so simple, it only took a few minutes to make.

I stamped the image in Basic Grey onto Whisper White cardstock, then coloured the leaves with blender pen and ink pads. I layered it onto Sahara Sand and Always Artichoke cardstock, then created the mistletoe berries with Basic Pearls. Cool, eh?

The card base is textured to give it an extra bit of something to make up for the simplicity of the design and I stamped the mistletoe once more in Sahara Sand in the corner. Simples!

Stamps: Easy Events
Cardstock: Sahara Sand (textured and smooth), Always Artichoke, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Grey, Always Artichoke, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Blender pen, Basic Pearls
