Hello, everybody! Hey, Hey, Happy Satur-Day! Hope you have some fun planned this weekend! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge launched this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #34 – May Anything Christmas Goes! I’ve been playing with more Prickley Pear Stamps and coordinating die, and had a great time creating this card!
I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a dark green background panel from the last few scraps of this cardstock. I was so sad to see it come to an end – it’s a gorgeous color and I’m not sure I can get any more of it. I tore some snow banks from white cardstock, layered them together and adhered them to the bottom of the green panel. I stamped, embossed and cut the trees with the coordinating die, and adhered them to the panel. This is that funky clear embossing powder in my stash that looks like it has some white embossing powder mixed in it. I know I’ve talked about it before. I’m so tempted to throw it away and replace it with a new container of that brand, but somehow it looks so cool that I always talk myself into keeping it, lol! I added three snowflake brads and then adhered the panel to the front of the card.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and stamped the sentiment in dark green ink. Since I was literally down to scraps of this cardstock as mentioned above, I fashioned a semi-border with four strips which I thought looked kind of cool. There’s more than one way to make this design happen even if you ARE running out of a particular color of cardstock! ;)
And one more look… totally loving this design! This is another one that would be easy to mass produce!
