For Colour Palette #16 with Cherry Cobbler part of it I thought it was time for some Christmas in July cardmaking. Have you started on your Christmas cards already? Getting an early start is always good so you beat the rush.

I’ve used the Cottage Wreath stamp set and Country Wreaths dies to create a bit of a rustic look on this card.

I’m following the sketch at Freshly Make Sketches #593. I added some Basic Gray stripes using the Inked & Tiled stamp set to resemble the horizontal strip of the sketch. This has a wood texture which coordinated with the embossed background.

I added a panel of Petal Pink Cardstock blended with Petal Pink ink under the die cut Basic White panel, This gave it a bit of warmth and contrast against the embossed Petal Pink layer.

For a pop of colour, I coloured around the Early Espresso hearts with a Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend. Some Cherry Cobbler leaves die cut from the Christmas Pinecone dies were cut apart to fit inbetween. Then a few silver leaves, trim and pearls were added to balance out with the gray.
