Holiday Bedding Inspired Card

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hello, friends!

Svitlana is here. Today, I want to share a holiday card inspired by a holiday bedding I saw in a magazine (you can see it as one of the photo props).

10292020 Seasons Tweetings Bountiful Branch 01

I started off by making a panel out of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock.

I used the Season's Tweetings Stamp Set to stamp the birds. Which I stamped using the Jet Black, Crimson, and Grapevine Dye Inks.

Then, I stamped several branches using the Bountiful Branch Stamp Set. Using the Season's Tweetings Mask Stencil to mask off the birds. To stamp the branches, I used the Dark Chocolate, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen Dye Inks and Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Crimson Dye Inks were used to stamp the berries.

The sentiment I also took from the Season's Tweetings Stamp Set and stamped it using the Ruby Red Dye Ink.

After I finished stamping the scene to add the look of a quilt, I debossed it using the Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die.

Lastly, I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base.

It was quite easy and a fun card to make. I like getting inspiration from magazines and home decor items. And If you need to refresh your creative juices or are simply looking for an inspiration I'm encouraging you to do this, as well.

Your card is absolutely beautiful. What a great idea to use the die as it does look exactly like a quilting pattern. Lovely!!

This card is out of this world gorgeous!!! STUNNNING!!! STUNNING!!! I love everything about it and wanted to steal your design for my Christmas cards this year. But when I clicked on the link below to buy the Bountiful branch set, it was out of stock and it looked like it was clearance as it was 50% off. Do you know if they are going to restock it? I would love to buy these stamp sets!

Will be an all time favourite Christmas card! Its a classic!

Thank you so much Annette for your sweet comment. I’m very pleased that you liked my card so much. It wouldn’t be “stealing” of the design though :) We’re here on Altenew blog work hard to bring you ideas and inspiration of how you can use Altenew products to their best. I didn’t realized the Bountiful Branch is sold out, but I’m sure it will be restocked. I’ve forwarded to Altenew your question and will update here on what the reply. In meanwhile you can check there stamp sets which are in stock: Winter Cardinal (it has a beautiful layered cardinal, a branch and berries – I considered this stamp set for this card but it’s currently borrowed by my friend), Layered Laurel, Majestic Misletoe. Maybe those can be an alternative to the Bountiful Branch.

Thanks for your response and suggestions for the the alternative stamp sets. The Majestic Misletoe is very pretty!
