Playing Cards with Friends

Hello again, peeps! Back for a second post today, and it's a special one!  My sweet friend Michele at I Card Everyone has asked me to play "cards" with her!  (Be sure to check out HER card!) Here are her rules:

  • Christmas Decor: baubles, wreathes, florals, trees
  • Untraditional colors: anything besides pine green and red, though untraditional shades of greens and reds are allowed
  • Background die
So here we go!  I've used some shades of Sweet Sugar Plum and Mint Macaron for my sparkly creation today:

I diecut some ornaments using an Impression Obsession set of dies, and the wreath is from Seasonal Swirls dies.  My bow is from the Pierced Blooms dies, and the sentiment is from a really old SU set called Christmas Classics that I stamped, fussy cut, then backed with a mat of Sweet Sugar Plum:

I backed the ornaments with a piece of Dazzling Diamond glimmer paper to make them stand out even more, and I adhered them to a sheet of Basic White, embossed with Altenew's Dotted Swirls cover die.

I really like using non-traditional colors! Now, do you want to see Michele's card? You can find it HERE!  Thanks for popping in, and thanks, Michele, for asking me to play CARDS with us!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

LeAnne! I love that debossing die so very much, as you well know! Your ornaments are as sweet as they can be all decked out in glittery gorgeousness!
Merry Christmas, and thanks so much for bringing Playing Cards with Friends home for 2021!
