I'm still posting some Christmas work since I hadn't gotten to it during December so, sorry if you're already out of the spirit. :) I made a Christmas card that was not the traditional Christmas look. Love how this turned out.
I started with a solid brown card base and then a gold vellum mat and a brown flourish print that was flocked. The print is from the DCWV Mainstreet stack. I started with some unfolded cream raffia and then used a plain brown ribbon on top, that I hand pleated. At the bottom of the ribbon, I added a gold glittered American Crafts brad.
The fancy gold 'sprig' was cut from a plastic decorative pick and I sewed it to the card mat so that it was sure to stay put. The mounted sentiment was cut from the Twinkle Toes cartridge. This cartridge is great for frames!! I cut the Stagefrgt cut at 2 1/4" with the layer. The stamped sentiment is from Scrappy Cat. I stamped it in brown onto vellum.
On the inside, I used a sentiment from American Crafts Dear Lizzy line and then added two leaves cut from the front sprig and another small piece of brown ribbon.
