Hello! I have been playing with the December Kit from White Rose Crafts a lot this month, and I am really enjoying myself! I decided that today I would focus on a couple of the embellishments that come in the kit. I also chose to share 2 cards that feature the same plum-colored color palette.
Both of my cards feature a Topper from ScrapBerry’s Elegantly Festive collection. I chose to also use ScrapBerry’s coordinating 6″ x 6″ papers. The deep plum cardstock on both cards are from my personal stash. On this first card, you’ll see a lovely lace bow. You actually get several of these in the December Kit! I love the little pearl in the center of the bow. This doesn’t add so much dimension that you need to worry about mailing the card. I would probably add a thin piece of cardboard on top, just to protect the pearl, but I think it will mail fine.
I love the soft plum reindeer paper that I used on this card. I find reindeer to be quite elegant, and that was the look I was going for. I simply tore a piece to fit on the corner of my card. I did the same thing with the pale pink snowflake paper on my card below.
For this card, my special embellishment is the sequins from the Very Merry Sparkle Blend. You can only get this mix in the December Kit, so if you collect Sparkle Blends like I do, you’ll need to be sure to grab a kit. Instead of making a shaker, or applying the sequins around my ScrapBerry Topper, I decided to make sort of my own sequined patterned paper. I thought this showed off some of the lovely sequins in this Blend nicely, and it really brought out the colors in the Topper. I adhered the sequins with On Point Glue from Imagine.
The cards I have been making from this kit have been coming together very quickly, which is awesome because I seem to be realllly short on time lately. I haven’t needed to stamp much or color, and those things (though I love them both very dearly) can be a real time suck. It’s been wonderful to bang out a bunch of cards with minimal supplies too. I really encourage you to look into this kit. Preorders are going on now, and I doubt they will last much longer. Please be sure to visit White Rose Crafts to see everything that is included in the December Kit. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
