Control Freaks Blog Hop - Home for the Holidays

  CF Header

Welcome to the Control Freaks blog hop - our theme for November is HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS.  You may have just arrived from Connie Babbert's blog or you may just be starting here. Either way - I'm super excited to show you what I made. I love love love the WINTER WOODS stamp set and I combined it with another of my favorites - DASHING DEER!!!

I love copper with the rich color of Merry Merlot. I will have a video posted on my blog in a separate post after the blog hop to show you all the details. But for now I'll let you know that I used the LAYERING CIRCLES FRAMELITS to cut a circle in my front layer and then ran it through the SWIRLS & CURLS EMBOSSING FOLDER. I stamped the trees with Early Espresso ink and then stamped them again with Merry Merlot ink just slightly off setting it on a Whisper White layer. The embossed layer is added over the white layer with Dimensionals. My deer is die cut on COPPER FOIL SHEETS and added with regular and mini Dimensionals.

I spritzed the white layer and the embossed layer with a combination of rubbing alcohol and a couple drops of BRIGHT COPPER SHIMMER PAINT to give it a dazzling shimmer that really isn't pronounced in the photos - but trust me when I tell you that it's AMAZING!

The inside greeting is stamped with Merry Merlot and I die cut the flowers in the corners from the DASHING DEER thinlits and then set them back in place. Kind of interesting don't you think?

Absolutely beautiful

The card is beautiful, but I would have loved an actual "how-to" video since I'm a visual learner.

Linda

Really pretty. Especially like the inside die cuts placed back into the spot they were cut from with peek a boo Merry Merlot in the back.

Stephanie Schultz

Super pretty Kelly! I say thumbs up on the inlays on the inside AND the copper ribbon! Great shimmery card! TFS!
