What a nice surprise, that my card from June, is this week’s “CASE the Designer” at Global Design Project.
Today’s card began with the same Thick Whisper White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, layered with Whisper White Cardstock, that I embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder, 4″ X 5 1/4″.
And, I used the same Stitched So Sweetly Die (largest) to cut the rectangle with the scalloped edge.
This time, I ran the scalloped rectangle through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Evergreen Forest Embossing Folder. To add color to the trees, I used Seaside Spray Ink and a Sponge Dauber. A happy accident occurred, because I ended up with multi colored trees. The Sponge Dauber, I thought was clean, retained green from a prior use, so my forest looked beautiful without additional coloring. YAY!
Rather than using sequins, I dotted the trees with Wink Of Stella. This is a fun and easy way to add some sparkle, although, it’s difficult to photograph. You’ll have to take my word for it.
Next, I layered the forest for thickness, and raised it on Dimensionals, making use of some left-over Dimensional edges.
Before attaching my forest, I glued a Square Vellum Doily in the left-hand corner for some extra pizzazz.
The sentiment, “Blessed Christmas Wishes,” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, stamped in Mint Macaron Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die. I placed a tiny piece of a Foam Adhesive Sheet under the end of “wishes” for added stability.
It was fun “casing” myself, and I hope you were inspired. I’d love to see your cards hanging in the Global Design Project gallery. Clicking on my original card design at the top will take you there.
