French Foliage Sneek Peak

We are one day away from the Holiday Mini's release so today I am sharing a sneek peak with you.

This card was made using the new French Foliage set.  The layout of the card was created using an old Mojo Monday sketch.

The base of the card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" from Garden Green cardstock.  I added a layer of More Mustard over this.

My images are stamped on Whisper White cardstock with More Mustard and Cajun Craze ink.  The 'banner' was created using Cajun Craze cardstock and I trimmed the ends with scissors.  I stamped some images in More Mustard ink onto More Mustard cardstock and trimmed into 3 smaller pieces which I laid side by side on the card front. 

Finally I stamped another image from the set in Garden Green ink onto Whisper White, stamped over this with More Mustard and punched out using the 1 3/4" circle punch.  With a sponge I lightly added some colour to the edges.  I then punched out a Garden Green scrap using the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch and layered my circle over this.  The scallops were a little plain so I pierced holes into each scallop.  I attached dimensionals (pop up's) to the back and adhered to my card front.

I hope this whets your appetite to see more from the fantastic Holiday Mini.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Margaret, why do you do this to me? I'm pretty sure I told you I wasn't allowed to buy anymore stuff but, after seeing this, I'm quite certain maybe I'll just have to sell one of the kids in order to finance my next SU! order. HAHAHAHAHA!!!
    Beautiful card - love that colour combo and the new stamp set is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for the sneaky-peaky xo

  2. Sneek peak? I got my Holiday Mini in the mail on Friday!! Needless to say there are quite a few pages that I have already 'dog-eared'. Now to decide what order to buy them in :)
    Beautiful card.
