Hello creative friends! I have a "Bittersweet" card to share with you today. The 25th of this month, Power Poppy released a new digi stamp called Bittersweet Wreath with two "Thankful" sentiments. An absolute charming set for Thanksgiving. I thought, why can't it be a Christmas wreath too? Or a Spring wreath, or even a Summer Wreath. This image is so versatile!
Being me...I immediately thought "white". So, I got out my Minc Machine and got to work Minc'ing this image with White Foil onto Kraft Cardstock. I then colored the berries with a red colored pencil and diecut it using a die from Spellbinder's Blossom Tags and Accents dies. I used a white colored pencil to color the embossed dots that were around the flower shape.
For the tag, I used a new Power Poppy sentiment from the Fully Stocked stamp set. I stamped it with Versamark onto black cardstock and embossed it with detailed ep (Ranger) Lastly, I sewed around the two panels, splattered some white acrylic paint, and added a few sequins. It actually came together pretty quickly. And for me, that is huge!!
