Inspiration Everywhere

This is a card I made for the StampTV challenge - Inspiration Everywhere. We had a photo of a box of chocolates, which had a very pretty design, and we drew our inspiration from that.

This is what I came up with:

I used the snowflakes, the gold ribbon and the colours red, white and gold. I also used part of a coffee cup which had a snowflake theme. I cut out a circle from the cup and inked up the edge slightly. I stamped the sentiment, punched it out with a scalloped circle punch and then punched a slightly larger circle out of red. I layered these together and set them aside.

I stamped snowflakes with red ink all over a white card base. I embossed some with clear embossing powder and left the rest plain. Then I stamped a few with VersaMark ink and embossed them in gold. I attached the sentiment layers and added a bow with a Glue Dot.

Supplies used:
Gina K. Designs: Christmas Joy, Seasonal Sentiments and Snow Frame Stamp sets

                             Red Velvet and White cardstock
