Hey there and welcome to the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop for November 2018!
Our November theme is a color challenge:
My first thought with these colors was "valentines", but when I scanned my Holiday catalog sets I found for some inexplicable reason Candy Cane Season was still un-inked!
I started with a Merry Merlot 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card base, then added a 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" layer of Smoky Slate. I discovered I had just a few slivers of Silver Foil in my stash (gasp! But more is arriving tomorrow if the snow we're getting tonight doesn't delay delivery), so I fudged the silver with Smoky Slate.
I added another layer of Merry Merlot 5 1/4" x 4" before adding the Whisper White layer stamped with the Powder Pink candy cane "hearts". Candy Cane Season is photopolymer, so it was easy to stamp accurately.
Can I just say I think Merry Merlot is the PERFECT burgundy color? We've had a couple of different versions of this color in the past (Bravo Burgundy comes to mind), but they were either too brown, too dull, too SOMETHING that just wasn't "it". Merry Merlot, however, IS IT!!!
I did manage to add a splash of Silver Foil with the Candy Cane Builder Punch, which is bundled with Candy Cane Season to save 10%. I stamped the 1 3/4" x 3 1/4" white layer with the "HO!HO!HO! image and Smoky Slate ink. The Merry Merlot layer behind it is 1 7/8" x 3 3/8".
And the envelope. Candy Cane Season is an "all inclusive" set!
