It's been awhile, but here I am back with a Christmas Card. Today I'm participating in the Make it Monday #138 - Inlaid Die-Cuts challenge on the Capture the Moment Blog. The Inlaid Die-Cuts add a bit of dimension to handmade cards. I like the look!
Here is the card created by Betsy, she also did the instructional video for the challenge.
And here is my card:
I created with neutral colors today, Kraft, Early Espresso and Fine Linen.
The Inlaid Die-Cut is from the Background Basics Evergreens Die Set, which has a matching Background Basics Evergreens Stamp Set. First I created a die cut the trees in Fine Linen and then stamped the polkadot trees using Crumb Cake ink. I love these trees, and will be using them a lot this Christmas!!
The "Peace on Earth" sentiment is embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder. I've been embossing a lot more recently! I haven't done this in years (about 20 years!!), but it really does add to the cards and I like the texture it creates!! The "Peace on Earth" sentiment is from the Tis the Season Sentiments Stamp Set. I love the fonts used on this sentiments set! Both stamp sets are from Papertrey Ink.
This is the inside of the card, I added a Kraft die-cut of the trees to the inside, makes it all come together!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have an awesome week!!
