Hello SRM friends! Lorena Cantó here today to share some inspiration. I don't know about you, but one of the things I love about Christmas and winter in general is the feeling of warmth and cozyness. It's just delightful! So that's what I bring you today, a little dose of paper crafted warmth and cozyness perfect for gift giving or for wrapping a handmade card. :)
I started with a SRM Kraft Embossed Bag (the large one). Kraft just screams "warm and rustic" to me. To make the embossed flourishes pop even more, I dry brushed some white pigment ink on it.
The next I did was die cutting, stamping and heat embossing a holly branch with berries. And although I chose to stamp them because I love to stamp, to achieve this look you can also die cut some leaves from green cardstock, or use one of those ornamental holly leaves that are sold in craft stores for decorating. There are lots of different ways to do this, really.
Ok, moving on to the sentiment. I used one sticker from the absolutely beautiful Fancy Sentiments/Christmas. Aren't these gorgeous? I adhered the sticker to a piece of kraft cardstock and trimmed it like a banner. Finally, I used a mini clothespin to attach everything to the bag and finished it with a double bow made from rustic and gold shimmer twine. Look at all the shine!
And by the way, here's that Fancy Sticker Sentiment that I love so much.
Just think of all the ways you can use all the other stickers on this sheet!
What about you? Is your Christmas crafting in full swing already? Thanks for stopping by!
