Chriss 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.
