Muse: Christmasvisions 40

imageChriss Blagrave is our Muse at Christmasvisions this week.  Chriss has created this fabulous card that I marked in my notes “brilliant to mass produce!”.  I can think of a number of different ways to execute…this is a very versatile design!  Focus on 1) Patterned paper base, repeating pattern, 2) framed sentiment in black ink, 3) corner embellishment with gems.

I started with a repeating dove pattern paper from Memory Box.  I added a simple handwritten Merry Christmas sentiment, framed in gold Stardream card stock.  I did emboss the “Merry” in white on black to add a little pizzazz.  The sentiment is mounted and adhered.

Since the doves are carrying holly, I added a holly embellishment to the corner of my sentiment box.  The hollies are large red gemstones.

Supplies: Paper Smooches Christmas Words 2, My Favorite Things Hand Lettered Holiday, Memory Box 12×12 paper, Stardream, gemstones

    I totally agree that this design is perfect for mass producing and for putting a dent in our stash of patterned papers. In fact, I have already created a second card lol. Love how you toned down the pattern and matched it with gold AND a handwritten sentiment that looks just perfect!
