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.
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.
