Traditional Christmas with Merriest Moments

Hello and welcome. Today I am taking part in the Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop. It's been quite a while since I joined the girls and it feels good to be back. Our theme this week is Traditional Christmas. That is right up my alley. Red, green and gold are my go to favourite colours for Christmas. I do dabble every so often with other colours, but will always come back to the traditional.

My card using these traditional colours today was created using the Merriest Moments stamp set.

Unusually for me, there is no designer series paper in sight. I wanted to try for a more simple and clean card. It was a nice change.

I started with creating the shaded background using a blending brush and Real Red ink pad. Then I stamped the flowers using Real Red ink and the leaves using Garden Green ink. Then I cut them out. I used scissors to cut them out as they were an easy shape to cut. I don't always use the dies for easy shapes, sometimes it's because I love a little fussy cutting and other times it's because my desk is a mess and my Stamp Cut 'N Emboss machine just won't fit...hehe
I glued the flowers and the leaves to the front panel of the card. The sentiment was stamped using Garden Green ink and punched out using the Everyday Label Punch. The sentiment is attached with dimensionals. The last step was to add a Gilded Gem to the centre of each flower.

Now that you have seen my creation, it is time to see what everyone else has made.

  1. Lovely card Narelle. Traditional Christmas means much the same to me with colours. I do like the soft background.

  2. Love these simple elements shown off by the blending brush accent!

  3. Love how the blending brush application enhances these simple elements.
