When I saw the gorgeous Gina K. Designs’ Sparkle and Shine card kit I knew I had to snatch it up. I’m so in love with the beautiful stamps in this kit (all available for individual purchase) and I had to make at least one card this holiday season with them.
To create this lovely card, I started by ink blending a piece of Gina K. Designs’ Red Velvet cardstock with Lawn Fawn’s Lobster, Cranberry, and Soot inks. I wanted the center of the card to appear lighter so I only used the two darker ink shades around the edges of the focal panel.
Image and Sentiment
I thought it would be fun to create a set of matching tags, so I used the smallest tag in Gina K. Designs’ Tag Trio die set to die cut another piece of Gina K. Designs’ Red Velvet cardstock. Next, I inked the edges of the tags with the same inks I used on the card. After this, I stamped two sentiments from Gina K. Designs’ Holiday Tapestry and Ornamental Snowflakes stamp sets and heat embossed them with Lawn Fawn’s Gold embossing powered.
For finishing touches, I added some brown/cream and red ribbon from my stash along with cream and gold twine to the tags and then added the same cream and gold twine to the card. Finally, I sprinkled Studio Katia’s Gold Foil Pearls and Doodlebug Design’s Ladybug Jewels around the card and tags to add a bit of shine – I love how this turned out!
I hope you enjoyed this card and tags. Thanks for stopping by!
