Season's Greetings Mixed Media Card for ScrapBerry's

  Tracey Sabella for ScrapBerry's - Mixed Media Christmas Card: http://bit.ly/2Buj9lt
Welcome to my creative space!

Christmas is just around the corner, and I've been busy creating holiday cards for family and friends. This sweet Christmas card with non-traditional colors features ScrapBerry's beautiful Elegantly Festive Collection along with gorgeous ScrapBerry's flowers and brass trumpet charm. This collection has more of a trendy/clean and simple style, but of course I had to grunge it up with a bit of gesso to fit my shabby mixed media style.

These ScrapBerry's flowers create a sweet cluster. The paper flowers are dry brushed with a little white gesso for a soft shabby touch. I also tucked in this Christmas trumpet charm for a festive feel. The cluster is accented with wintry Prills and shaved ice flakes. I cut and embossed white cardstock to create the dimensional snowflake rubbed with coordinating ink, then Prima's Finnabair metallic waxes for a little shimmer.

In addition to dry brushing the paper with gesso, I also stenciled glittery texture paste diagonally across the background with a Tim Holtz Speckles Layering Stencil to add more wintry shimmer. The sentiment block cut from the Elegantly Festive Cards 1 page is edged with coordinating Distress ink, and a bit of tattered cheese cloth is tucked underneath the sentiment and other elements for a soft touch.

I hope you've been inspired to grab your ScrapBerry's supplies

Our sweet daughter-in-law took this adorable photo of Avery with her first pumpkin at the picking patch.

Mixed Media Card for ScrapBerry's

Welcome to my creative space!

Today I'm sharing a mixed media card featuring the gorgeous Nature's Spirit Collection. Our beautiful fall colors have lingered this year, but are nearly gone now. I wanted to keep them going just a little longer so the gorgeous fall colors in these papers from the Nature's Spirit collection were perfect. I've used one of the 6x6" sheets for the base and fussy cut the fabulous butterflies and lovely sentiment from the Feather Cluster sheet as well as the sweet flower tucked in behind the sentiment. I normally hand deliver my cards allowing me to use a lot of dimension, but this card is going into the mail so I simply added a couple darling ScrapBerry's charms to accent. I've also used ScrapBerry's Decorative Ribbons (lace) on the mixed media background.

To create the mixed media background, I stenciled a design with molding paste, then used matte gel medium to adhere strips of lace with the ends distressed. I colored the lace and molding paste areas with coordinating Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst mists, then rubbed with Prima metallic waxes to highlight the texture.

The metal charms are also rubbed with Prima waxes.

I just adore the way these fussy cut butterflies pop against the mixed media background!
