Hi everyone! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! They sure do go by fast, don’t they?! Our February challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #31 – February Anything Christmas Goes! I created a fun split panel card with acetate and used a Clearly Besotted stamp set that I won last year. This is the first time I’ve used it and it’s so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it!
I created a standard A2 size top folding card base and cut a portion out of it with a MFT Stitched Scallop Basic Edges die. I cut two thin borders from the leftover piece of cardstock, colored them red and set them aside. I cut a panel of acetate and adhered it behind the two pieces of cardstock to form the front flap.
I adhered the red borders and stamped the sentiment in black ink in the bottom right corner. I stamped ‘xo’ randomly over the top of the flap in two shades of green ink and adhered tiny iridescent gemstones randomly to fill in spaces.
I stamped the darling little moose on the inside, centering it between the two cardstock pieces, and then stamped the sentiment directly above it. I colored the moose with alcohol markers and that completed the card!
And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! This is such a fun technique!
