Hi everyone! Brrrrr… it’s nice and chilly here and that’s just the way we like it! Still shaking my head at how fast this year has flown by! The jolly guy in the red suit will be here in a few short weeks! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge has launched over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #41 – December Anything Christmas Goes! I created a pretty woodlands scene with debossed trees – this is the first time I’ve tried this technique and I love how easy it is! Not sure why I haven’t tried it before now, lol!
I created a top folding square card base from CutCardStock Royal Sundance Felt Natural cardstock and a panel for the front from CutCardStock Neenah Classic Crest 80# Baronial Ivory cardstock. I inked the raised side of the Stampin’ Up Woodland Textured Impressions embossing folder with Memento Espresso Truffle ink, placed the cardstock panel in the folder and ran it through the Gemini Junior. The debossed side is the back side that looks so cool, so I layered the panel on Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate cardstock and adhered it to the card base. I die cut the deer from Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate cardstock as well and added them to the card front. Love how the buck is watching and protecting the doe and their baby! ;) I punched a 1/2″ circle from the light yellow cardstock and adhered it in the sky, thinking it could be an early morning sun. I stamped, trimmed and layered the sentiment on a scrap of the brown cardstock, and adhered it in the top left corner. Finally, using the Prickley Pear Stamps Bird Cage stamp set I stamped the little bird on CutCardStock Red Wagon cardstock, cut it with the coordinating Bird Cage die, and adhered it to a tree branch.
I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Neenah Classic Crest 80# Baronial Ivory cardstock and embellished it with a strip of Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate cardstock, stamped the sentiment in brown ink and layered the panel on the brown cardstock.
And one more peek… I’m going to have to do the debossed technique more often! Love how this turned out!
