Sept. Blog Blitz: Season's Greetings
by Jinny Newlin

Afternoon, y'all!  It's Jinny here again, sharing a card that's dressed for the Christmas season, for day three of our September Blog Blitz.

Poppy Season's Greetings - JinnyNewlin
I started this card by watercoloring the space behind where the Ornament Tree die cut would eventually lie on a piece of watercolor paper.  I then splattered it with those same shades of green watercolor, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, before framing it with both Lake House cardstock and gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  The tree itself was die-cut from white cardstock, and the "season's greetings" sentiment was stamped, in Jet Black ink, along its right edge.

A number of turquoise, red, and crystal buttons were sewn, using gold thread, into the nearly-solid white spaces on the tree; before it was popped off the surface, of the white, cardstock, card face, with foam tape.

Die-cut, Garden Green, cardstock  Pine Twigs, as well as a Real Red, cardstock Lovely Bow, which was coated in a healthy dose of Clear Wink of Stella, complete the look.
