12 Days of Christmas Cards - Card 9

Are you sick of this set yet?? Hopefully not! If you scroll down and check out my other samples, you can see how different they all are (and I still have a couple more coming!!).
This colour combination has had a workout this year: Purely Pomegranate, River Rock and Always Artichoke. It's the colours in the gorgeous Holiday Harmony papers in the Spring Mini (that finishes at the end of this month!). For the background, I've stamped the swirl in Versamark ink, and the small flower in Whisper White ink. On the Always Artichoke strip, I've done some faux stitching with the Mat Pack and White gel pen (at $18.95 and $7.95, it's the cheapest "sewing machine" you'll ever buy!). The main image has been inked in River Rock and then the edges rolled in Always Artichoke ink. I also sponged the edges of the cardstock with Always Artichoke ink and a sponge dauber. I've used just a small piece of Pomegranate Satin ribbon in the corner. It's so rich and lustrous, and really adds a touch of elegance to the card. Finally I've stamped the star on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the 1/2" circle punch, and popped it up on a Dimensional.
