Embossed Birds ‘n’ Trees Card
This card was made for the Perfectly Rustics Challenge No. 36 – Embossing – where we are to use wet or dry embossing on our project. (http://perfectlyrustics.com/2014/11/17/prdc-36-embossing/).
For the background panel on this card, I used the Sizzix “Stamp & Emboss – Birds ‘n’ Trees” set which includes both the embossing folder and coordinating large background stamp. I stamped the background on My Mind’s Eye Nutmeg “Boy” Southwest Paper from the Indie Chic collection using Gina K Warm Cocoa ink first. Then the images were lined up in the embossing folder and run through my Cuttlebug. The Greeting was from the Gina K Designs “Winter Cheer” stamp set and was stamped using Gina K Dark Chocolate ink. The My Mind’s Eye card stock is heavily textured which made it difficult to get clean, stamped images so I used my MISTI to stamp the background and greeting because I needed to stamp them each multiple times. (For more information on the MISTI, check out my earlier post HERE.) Gina K Warm Cocoa card stock was used for the mats and card base. I added some ribbon, twine and a mini wooden snowflake ornament I got at Michaels (this is the smaller of the two sizes that came in the pack of 20) to finish off this simple card.
Thanks for checking out my card project!
