Hello it’s Debby here. Gosh I can’t believe we are almost at the end of the year already! For today’s card I’m using the Golden Garden set. I fell in love with the this gorgeous set a while back after seeing this card by Marika where she colored the set with beautiful blueberries. For my winter berries version today I’m going for a red and green Holiday feel.

I stamped the Golden Garden images twice with black ink on grey card and cut out with their matching dies. With a bundle on die cuts on my desk I colored the images with Faber Castell pencils and accented with white and glitter pens. I also stamped the leaf fronds from Floral Frame with embossing ink and white heat embossed before cutting out with the Floral Frame dies. I love how the fronds nestle around the berries and the white embossing brightens everything up a little.

On a grey panel I white heat embossed a sentiment form Holiday Wishes and splattered the panel with white gouache. I gathered the die cuts together and adhered with foam adhesive. I then accented with a twine bow and a few clear sequins. Finally I mounted the finished panel on a white card base.
