Hello! I was able to find some time today to play along with the Make it Monday challenge from Papertrey Ink. I love this particular challenge using a sentiment as the focal point! I just had to play along... and I thought it would be a great way to get some Christmas cards made. Sadly, I have not kept up with my personal challenge to make 8 Christmas cards per month.
I love that this card has some dimension from the technique because I could keep it super simple and not have to worry about it being more postage to mail. I die cut the patterned paper from the Summer Camp patterned paper that I was able to get during the huge sale Papertrey Ink had earlier in the year. I adhered that piece to my kraft card base and then die cut the center using the Brushed Off Rectangle die. I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Village set using VersaFine black ink. I then stamped the trees using Ripe Avocado and Fresh Snow. I stamped a few more trees on some scrap kraft card stock and die cut them. I then stamped the house using Dark Chocolate, True Black and Kraft inks and then I die cut it. This was the first time I actually inked up this set and other than needing some practice lining up the pieces... it was pretty easy and I loved the result! The last thing to do was to adhere the trees and the house. I did decide at the last minute to add a little drift of snow on the roof of the house using a white Prismacolor pencil. I love it!
Here are the products I used for this card:
Stamps: Winter Village (PTI)
Card Stock: Kraft (PTI), Summer Camp (retired PTI)
Adhesive: Tombow Mono Multipurpose liquid glue (SSS)
I'd love to hear what you thought of my creations.
Thanks for stopping by!
See ya next time.
