The Card Concept Challenge #201

It's time for another inspiration challenge with The Card Concept. Here's this month's board, Fall Leaves:

The challenge is to create a card inspired by any aspect of this photo, whether it's the theme, the colours, one or more of the items in the picture - just any idea that comes to mind. Plus of course we'd love it if you shared your card in our gallery. 

I took the leaves as inspiration but replaced the autumn/fall colours with Christmas greenery. 

The holly branches were cut from white card and coloured with distress inks, then I added some glossy accents and rock candy glitter to the berries. The "bells" are actually a coffee cup layer die upside down and for the clappers I glued two small circles together then shaped them for dimension. The 3D embossing folder gives me pine leaves/branches in my background.

Materials used:
  • stamps - Christmas Classics (Stampin' Up)
  • card - basic black, basic white gold glitter 
  • dies - Festive Gatherings, Papercut Cafe (Tim Holtz), stitched frame (stash)
  • distress inks - twisted citron, mowed lawn, candied apple, picket fence
  • other - craft foam, Big Shot, Dimensionals, blending brushes, 1/4" circle punch, Glossy Accents, clear rock candy glitter, gold cord, gold embossing powder, heat tool. Pine Branches 3D embossing folder (Tim Holtz), shaping mat and tool
