ID: MC July/16 - Quill - In The Midst Of Winter - ECD Best Wishes card
size: 4.25"w x 5.5"h

Created: July 23, 2016

It was a productive quilling session again... I was in a mood to make bright flowers... and then I thought I'd pair it up with one of the newest quote stamps linking winter and summer... I'm also using one of my newest die sets from Sue Wilson "Festive Collection - Poinsettia Mini Background" 3pce set.

I'm using one of the  "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("Best Wishes") also available on Quietfire Design  HERE

I'm also using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design  

("In The Midst Of Winter"); 


Scored and folded my white card.

Die cut the frame and sponged with Distress "Mowed Lawn", removed frame from die and lightly sponged with the same green sponge all over. Adhered to card front.

Inked the quote stamp using "Candied Apple" all over and then hitting here and there with the mowed lawn, stamping and clear embossing.

Die cut the holly leaf items (Tim's Thinlits "Holiday Greens" and Cherry Lynn Designs "Holly Flourish" from white cardstock. applied the mowed lawn direct to paper and then sponged with some "Forest Moss". Cut apart the various leaf sprigs and adhered randomly, then adhered my quilled flowers.




Sponged some green around the edges of the center drop out piece from the frame. Adhered to card inside.

Inked the holly stamp (Old Island "Variegated Holly") all over with the mowed lawn, here and there with the red and the outside edges with the moss. stamped and clear embossed.

Die cut the "Best Wishes" from white cardstock, inked all over with the red and sponged around the edges with the moss, clear embossed.
