Hello everyone!  Heidi, here today and I have a quick and easy Christmas card to share with you.


I created a vintage style flower for an embellishment using the S5-143 Jewel Flowers & Flourishes die template from  Julianna Hudgins Positively Me Collection from Spellbinders Creative Arts®.  I used old book pages for the flower and I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Then I fluffed up the flower and added some silver Stickles on the edges of the flower and leaves for a little sparkle.  I added a Kaiser Craft Sparklets-Crystal to the center of the flower and attached the flower to the top of the ornament die cut.


Here is a close up of the flower.


To create the ornament and the matting I used S5-131 A2 Matting Basics AS4-283 2010 Heirloom Ornaments die templates and CR-04590 Heritage Christmas Ornaments Clear Stamps from JustRite Papercraft.  I used white ink and embossing powder on the image.  To finish off the card I added a few rhinestones.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Positively Me Blog today!

I hope you have a great weekend!

About HeidiBlankenship

Hello, my name is Heidi Blankenship and I live in Minnesota with my husband Eric and two boys, Dusty and Evan. I have been involved with paper crafting for over twenty years. I was introduced to stamping in 1988 and over the years, I have taught many classes at the local stamping and scrapbooking stores. I love to create a large spectrum of projects with a broad range of styles, but I lean towards the vintage, artsy style. I’ve been very fortunate to work with some wonderful companies in the industry. I am currently on the Spellbinders Blog Team, JustRite Papercaft Blog Team, Discount Cardstock, Really Reasonable Ribbon Special Events Design Team, Vintage Street Market, The Rubber Cafe Glue-ista Team, Julianna C. Hudgins Design Team and Pro 31 Designs. I have been published in a variety of national and international magazines, catalog/idea books and newsletters, as well as various manufacturer product packaging and sales ads. My design work has also been featured on Scrapbooking Memories (now Scrapbook Soup), QVC, HSN, Creative Home Arts and Create and Craft TV in the UK just to name a few. I love creating cards, altered arts, home décor, and scrapbooking— traditional and digital. In my spare time I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, photography, floral design, painting, gardening and jewelry making. Please visit my blog http://embellished-dreams.blogspot.com/ to see all of my design work. ;-)
