Happiest Holidays Collection Day five: Glistening Paperwhites

Tell me you are not already adding this set to your shopping cart?!? Today is day five of our Happiest Holiday Collection at Power Poppy. What fun we have been having the last week. If you missed any of the days head over to the Power Poppy Blog to start at the beginning! This set is called Glistening Paperwhites. Be still my heart.... 



Marcy has inspiration behind this set as always on the Power Poppy Blog. Here is a snippet of what is behind this set. You can't have Christmas without boughs of beautiful greenery. This special grouping will breathe a whoosh of fresh winter air into your cardmaking, with an illustration of classic Paperwhites paired with Juniper and Seeded Eucalyptus. These natural elements would be shimmeringly lovely embossed in silver, gold, or blue metallic, dusted with glitter, colored in cool shades of green, blue, and ivory. Individual accent images of each of the components of the bough work on their own or as enhancements to the main image. Can you get enough of these sentiments? Six options to help you make cards for the most wonderful time of the year!


No doubt when I saw Glistening Paperwhites I felt a softer feel was needed first inking! hee hee  I love the soft feel of these colors and the silver and white together. Just looking at this makes me swoon. After I colored the beautiful blooms and stems I die cut using an oval shape. A Spellbinders die for the base with some designer paper for the base. Wrapped some silver cored around the left edge and tied my button off with more of the cord. Added a few pearls to the corner and some sparkles to finish it off. Voila!
