Card #1 Size: 7"w x 5"h (top fold)

ID: MC Aug/13 - Dreamweaver - I Will Honour 1 & 2 card
size: see below images

Created: August 12, 2013

I checked the Dreamweaver site to see what this month's challenge was and it was "Xmas"... So dug in my stencils to see what I was in a mood to use... and stencilled two pieces using the same stencil.

When I finished the first card I decided to use the 2nd one at the same time. Both cards use the same elements and papers etc, just the stencilling technique and placement/orientation is different.

I'm also using one of last year's Xmas stamps from Quietfire Design 


I used Pearlescent paste for both cards, applying it to white cardstock. On the 2nd card I left the pearlescent as is, but when dry ran through with the Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder. On the 1st card I sprinkled Distress "Shabby Shutters" on the leaves & Jacquard Pearl Ex powder "Spring Green" on the stems. Heat embossed until things started to bubble... Love the look. And love that some of the pearlescent is still coming through.

Stamped the quote onto white cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed for the 1st card & used Lindy's Stamp Gang "Midnight Gold Obsidian" for the 2nd card. Die cut both using Spellbinder's "Labels Four". Ran it through my machine again to emboss the edge, then sponged some Distress green around the edges with a dirty green sponge.

Die cut the ornaments (Memory Box "Precious Ornaments") from some scrap decorative paper from my stash that had the Swiss Dots embossed in to it. Applied Perfect Medium to the ornament areas only and clear embossed the ornament and embossed with Queen's Gold on the ornament holding section.

Both white embossed pieces were layered onto an olive toned

Card 1 was then layered on to a purple design scrapbook paper and then on to a purple cardstock, then onto a top folded olive toned green card giving it an off the edge look.

Card 2 was layered on to a purple cardstock that was adhered to the main white side folded card edge to edge. It was also put on with an off the edge look

Adhered the quote element with 3D foam tape.
