Hello and welcome back! The new Simon Says Stamp release, Handmade Holiday, is in full swing and I’m loving it! Once again, for today’s post, I’m featuring the new SSS Etched Berry Branch. Can I just say that I love this die so much?! I’m a sucker for leaves and flowers though! Let’s go over the details for today’s project, shall we?
I began this project by cutting a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and running it through the die cutting machine using the SSS Kaleidoscope Embossing Folder. This added some much needed texture and interest for the background.
Next, I used the SSS Etched Berry Branch along with some rainbow cardstock pieces from my stash and made a bunch of branches. I arranged them atop the embossed panel, adhering only the stems with liquid glue.
I decided on this SSS Large Joy sentiment and die cut it once from mirror gold cardstock and once from white cardstock. I also cut the shadow portion of the die twice from black cardstock and glued all of those pieces together.
I glued the sentiment to the bottom portion of the panel and added PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls for the berries. All of this was then adhered to a black cardstock panel using foam tape before being adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.
Simple project for today, but I love the way that it came out. Who doesn’t love rainbow leaves?! Thanks for joining me today, and I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire Handmade Holiday release! Let me know your favorites. Have an beautiful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
