The Greetery: With Love at Christmas...



 It's Day 3 of reveals at The Greetery.  We are closer and closer to the Friday Greetery Release.  I have seen so many comments and discussions on all of the amazing new stamps and dies and it is so fun to see your excitement because I am excited too!  I just love all of Betsy's amazing designs and they are so fun to play with!

Lets get started on today's reveals.  Both of my cards today showcase the new set called With Love at Christmas.  There are so many amazing details in these sets but I have 2 clean and simple cards using the multi-step floral images....

The Greetery

To create this first card, I stamped the floral images and the used the coordinating die cut.  I used the die cut to cut out a piece of fun foam as well, so I could pop up the floral image on the card front.  I did some ink blending in the background to create a soft blue look and then scored a frame around the card base.  Last, I attached the floral image to the card and stamped the sentiment. 

The Greetery

I had to use the same image again but this time I thought it needed a fall theme.  

The Greetery

I stamped and die cut the image and then went back in with Copic markers to add lots of extra details.  I popped the main image up on a striped card base.  I used Washi tape to mask off the stripes and then blended in yellow ink.  I finished the card off with that beautiful thank you sentiment. 

The Greetery

One last reveal for today is all of those striped and inked up envelopes I have been sharing behind each card this week.  Betsy has an awesome new set of Envelope Stencils, called Flapable Stencils, that add the perfect detail to each piece of happy mail.  




We have one last day of reveals and then everything you have seen this week will be available on Friday!  Release day is almost here!

Check out the Greetery Blog for more detail and to check out the rest of the Inspiration Team.  

Have a great day!
