I stamped both the berries and the sentiment, die cut the berries, and for my choice, I used scoring and sequins.
The Penny Black "Berry Merry Christmas" stamp was inked up using a few shades of red Distress markers for the berries and browns for the stem. I then lightly spritzed with water and stamped on watercolour paper. It was die cut with the "Berry Cluster" die. I glued the stem to the shimmery cream card base and popped the berries up on foam tape.
I used a "thank you" sentiment as I thought it would make a good Christmas thank you card. It is stamped and then heat embossed. Once it was in place, I scored the borders.
I don't have any red sequins so coloured some clear ones with a couple of drops of red alcohol ink in a small plastic bag.
On another note, I just found out which of the puppies is going to be mine. It will be this sweet girl:
Here are the four puppies at 8 weeks old. Mine is the one on the far left.
I get to bring her home on Saturday so expect some more photos next week!
