Paper Sweeties Sneak Peek....Warm Winter Wishes

Morning all! I'm back with a second day of glimpses of Paper Sweeties' new release for be revealed tomorrow! This is a vintage style card using the title track from the 'Warm Winter Wishes' set:

I was nosing around Pinterest last weekend and I saw this stunning tag with dimensionalized layers highlighted with pearls, so I decided build off of that inspiration and make my own version. I started off with some lovely Maja Design papers from the It's Christmas Time collection. I cut out 3 consecutive Oval Nestabilities, the last and smallest cut out twice, to make a frame. I then attached the layers together with pop dots and added liquid pearls to most of the layers. I added all of that to a Scalloped Oval Nestie shape. The inside of the circle was sponged and that's where I stamped the sentiment and added the Leafy Branch die cut. The flower is from Michael's $1 bin and to that I adhered a hemp bow and some button snowflakes. I wanted to tie in the green stamen of the flower and the Ribbon Carousel had a perfect match in the form of some lush Julep Green Vintage seam binding. Some Zva Creative pearl flourishes add a bit of elegance and the antique lace enhances the vintage feel.

I used Paper Sweeties' Sketch Inspiration #2 challenge for my design:

Make sure you take a peek at what the other Paper Sweeties' DT members are making with these beautiful stamps as well:

I'll be back tomorrow for release day with another card using some Paper Sweeties' stamps as inspiration!
