“Trees – Leaves” is the theme for this week’s Global Design Project. This inspired me to design my first Christmas card for 2020, using the In The Pines bundle.
The first thing I did was grab my Pinewoods Dies, and cut two trees from Regals 6X6 Designer Paper in Shaded Spruce. Doesn’t it look like snow on the trees?
To add snow to the background, I embossed the 4″ X 5 1/4″ Whisper White layer with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. Then, for some woodsy contrast, I glued the layer to a Crumb Cake card base.
To use the traditional colors of red and green, I stamped the sentiment in Real Red Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. “Most wonderful time of the year” is from the Festive Corners Stamp Set, and don’t you love the way it fits the corner? I also discovered it fits within one of the Stitched Triangles Dies. This is the largest triangle; the one with the right angle.
I cut a second, matching, Stitched Triangle, and embossed it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, for some texture on the ground.
After gluing the triangles and trees to the Winter Snow background, my first Christmas card was complete.
