Happy Labor Day in the USA! Merry Monday returns today from the summer off - yay! Deanne challenges us to use only gold/black/white on your Christmas card - what an elegant combination. I love her inspiration photo!
As usual I immediately had one idea, only to go in a different direction once I started digging through my stash. I was looking for an ornament die cut when I ran into a sentiment die by Sizzix that I got on sale at Hobby Lobby. Then I found an errant embossing folder in the die cut drawer - a lovely woodgrain by Darice that I thought would give nice texture behind the sentiment.
Here's my card:
Supplies: Paper - Neenah Solar White, DCWV foil, Anchor Paper black
Dies - Sizzix 660662; My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 20 (stitched rectangle)
Embossing Folder - Darice Woodgrain; Other - foam tape
How appropriate that I'd use Blueprints 20 on a Deanne challenge - she inspired me to buy that set with her beautiful cards using it. I now own a bunch of Blueprints but I seem to go to 20 quite often. I die cut the stitched rectangle after I embossed the woodgrain which really softened the texture. Perfect for popping my sentiment panel on top.
The summer passed too quickly for my taste but I love fall with all the beautiful colors we'll get on the trees in Minnesota. If you're in the US, hope you're enjoying the holiday! Happy crafting and thanks for stopping!!
