OnStage Swaps

Hi everyone, sharing my swaps for today's OnStage event here in Perth, Western Australia.

I had all these 3cm x 9.5cm wide strips of the Very Vanilla and Real Red Check Designer Series Paper (from the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper Pack) that were left over from a project that I have prepped for an 'All Things Christmas' event on the 30 November 2019.  So I got my designer hat on and I came up with this Christmas Card.

It is a mix of several stamps sets, Joy of Giving Tag Kit, Winter Woods and Christmas Gleaming.  The Holly is from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set which I stamped with Black Memento on Very Vanilla cardstock and coloured with Old Olive and Real Red Stampin' Blends (light and dark) before fussy cutting.

The Christmas Trees are from the Winter Woods stamp set which I stamped with Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla cardstock before cutting out with the matching die from the In the Woods dies.

The Stitched Shaped Oval was cut from Very Vanilla cardstock and then stamped with the images from the Joy of Giving Tag Kit stamp set and Real Red ink.

The Real Red foliage was cut out using the leaf die from the In the Woods dies.

A Soft Suede large Stitched Shape Circle was layered behind the Designer Series Paper, the Christmas Trees, foliage, holly and sentiment.  A Linen Thread bow was added with some Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels added to finish.  This was all layered onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that had been embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.  This was then adhered to the card front using dimensionals.

I actually made a Soft Suede version of this card first, but found it a bit 'dark' for Christmas, so redesigned if ever so slightly and came up with the Very Vanilla version which I was very happy with.
