Good morning! Happy day-after-Thanksgiving! I hope you all ate plenty of yumminess yesterday… and maybe are getting your shop on today. 😉 (I have more details about that at the bottom of my post! Stay tuned!) I showed you my holiday projects using the bits and pieces in a post a little earlier this week, and this project is along the same vein. Remember the 25 Days of Christmas Tags series the Where Creativity Meets C9 team participated in? I created a panel using the Floral Fill In stamps for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags and was able to make a card from the teeny bits and pieces!
I started by stamping the beautiful Blooms Fill In background from Concord and 9th (EH|C9) with Mountain Mist ink from Altenew, then added the “fill-in” bits with Cosmic Berry, Purple Wine, and Puffy Heart, then added the leaves with Volcano Lake and Lagoon inks. I die cut the two full bouquets using the coordinating dies (C9|EH) (which are super clever and include the lovely inked edge!), which left me several partial bouquets on the full panel. I was left with basically nothing on the stamped panel, but I had plenty of little floral bits to make a card!
I had also heat embossed the Plaid Background stamp (C9|EH) using white embossing powder for the background of the tag, and had a half of a panel left. I trimmed it down, then added two strips of pearlescent mint card stock from my stash on the edges. To arrange my bits of bouquet behind the panel, I first traced the edges of where my panel would sit on the gray card front, so that I would know where to arrange my flowers, then placed a piece of Scor Tape and adhered my flowers down. I added some silver glitter sprigs of foliage, also from the Floral Fill In die set (C9|EH), to add some sparkle and texture.
For the greeting, I used the Season of Cheer (EH|C9) dies from Concord and 9th cut from some silver foil card stock. For a finishing touch, I added a few Oyster Grey Nuvo Drops here and there amongst my blooms. I thought the sentiment would be perfect to help celebrate Ellen Hutson’s 11th anniversary sale!
