As soon as I saw this month's inspiration photo for the PTI November Blog Hop, I knew I had to find the time to make a card. I was pushing it to the last minute and got it done last night. The whole inspiration picture makes me want to put together a beautifully staged scene to tuck the card into though!
Anyway, enough babble, onto the card!
I took a bit of a shortcut in the sense that I already had these ornaments from Vintage Ornaments II already mostly stamped and cut out from a previous project. I picked my colours from the photo. I decided to go with Hawaiian Shores for the background, white and gold embossing tree elements on that and then the ornaments are Raspberry Fizz and Lovely Lady, Simply Chartreuse and Limeade Ice, and Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, and Harvest Gold. I also brought in silver for the ornament toppers.
Once I had those all set to go, I stamped by background to make it appear like a small view of a white tree. I used one of the branch images from Holiday Greens. I embossed that in white and brought in a small trio of dots from the Wreath of All Seasons set and embossed that in gold.
I stamped the ornament strings in black and then adhered the ornaments with dimensional tape. The greeting comes from the Christmas Ombre Sentiments set. I really love this set because the sentiments are all a decent length and fit into spots that others normally wouldn't. I thought it was a good fit here.
To make my little scene pop, I mounted that on black and then gold.
