For my card, I featured a mash up of products from the whole Birch Press Designs family, including the new Poppystamps Ornament Background die. To start, I embossed a panel of white cardstock with the new Ringadings 3D Embossing Folder from Memory Box. I matted it with a piece of red cardstock.
Next, I die cut white cardstock with the Ornament Background die twice for added dimension. I adhered the background die cuts together with spray adhesive. I also die cut pieces of an alcohol ink panel that I had in my stash from just the ornament portion of the die. I did not have a large alcohol ink panel, so cutting it into pieces to fit what I wanted to die cut helped save paper. To create the alcohol ink panel, I just blended a variety of green alcohol inks together with a lot of isopropyl alcohol and ink splatters for texture. I inlayed the ornaments in place with liquid glue. To finish the ornaments, I shaded the tops with copic markers – C1,C3, and C5.
Lastly, I embellished the card with holiday foliage, berries and a sentiment. I die cut several leaves from various green cardstock with the Memory Box Pine Needle Trio die and the Poppystamps Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel. I die cut the berries from an alcohol ink panel that I created with red and pink inks. The sentiment is one I use frequently. It is the Joy Honey Script die from Birch Press. I die cut it from two layers of white cardstock and once from red foil from the Polished Foil Paper pad. I attached the completed card front to a side-folding, A2 card base.
Hope you enjoyed my card! And don’t forget to hop along with the team for more inspiration. Until next time, happy crafting!
