12/31/21 DT Favorite at A Perfect Time To Craft Open Challenge!
Hi everyone! A super fun Happy Hump Day to you – you’ve made it half-way through the week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #56 – Anything Goes + Black & White Plus One Color! All of our challenges are ‘anything goes’ and we offer a technique twist each month to inspire you. Just remember that the twist is not mandatory to play! I used black and white plus red for a Christmas card this time. Loving the black and red paper that looks like flannel paired with the oh-so-popular deer from the CUTplorations Two Reindeer Dies! ;)
This is a super simple design that could easily be mass produced. I cut a top folding 5-1/2″ square card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and layered the black and red flannel paper on a CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock panel which I adhered to the card base. I die cut a reindeer from red foil cardstock and a second one from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock which I layered slightly offset beneath the red one for a slight shadow effect. I cut a layered corner element and added several black enamel dots. I heat embossed the sentiment in Hero Arts Red Embossing Powder, flagged one end and adhered it to the lower right corner of the card front.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of the black and red flannel paper and a narrow strip of black cardstock, stamped the sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock.
And one more look… totally loving how this turned out!
