Stempelglede is having a huge Handmade Card Contest, and when I saw the great colours we're suppose to use, I new I had to give it a shot :)
And the prices to win are amazing - who does'nt want to win some amazing Stempelglede stamps?
So this is what I came up with, using the great colors in the picture above.
I've used stamps from Stempelglede's georgeous collections "Gledelig Jul" and "Grunge Hearts".
I've used Melissa Frances' georgeous patterned paper "Winter Freeze", and white, blue and craft cardstock from Bazzill to make the card.
I've stamped swirls from Stempelglede's "Grunge Hearts" Collection on the patterned paper with embossing ink, and embossed it with Ranger "Sea Foam" embossingpowder.
My sewing machine does'nt work on paper, so I just made the holes in the papers with it, and then sewed by hand around the patterned papers.
The rest of the stamping is made with Archival Ink - Sepia, on Aquarellpaper 200 g.
I've painted the beautiful angel's wings with Glimmermist - Silver, to make it shimmer a bit :)
All the edges on the panels and papers are inked with Distress Ink - Antique Linen and Weathered Wood. The craft cardstock are inked with some Vintage Photo as well.
For the embellishments I've used several different flowers, roses and rosebuds from Unik Hobby, Prima and Papirloftet, a cinnamon stick with some tulle around, charms and ribbon from Unik Hobby, Pearlswirls from Prima, and other pearls from Kort & Godt.
I've used the same layout on every side of the card, just flipped it a bit, to make a littele twist.
The "frames" on the white squares are made with a EKSuksess borderpunch, and for the circles I've used Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic and Scalloped Circles.
Thank you for visiting - hope you've enjoyed my card!
Have a great weekend!
