MERRY CHRISTMAS CARD & TAG - Ink-Blending and Die-cutting
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Distress Ink Pads - Candied Apple, Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Brushed Corduroy and Gathered Twigs
Emboss a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and a 3 1/2" x 5" piece of white cardstock using the Soft Snowfall Embossing Folder.
Using a Large Blending Brush ink-blend each Distress Ink color onto each embossed layer.
Die-cut the ink-blended cardstock with the Nested Domed Arch die measuring 2 3/4" x 4". Remember to reverse the arch for the tag.
Adhere one of the ink-blended layers to the Pincushion background
Fold a piece of 7" x 5" in half along the 7" side.
Die-cut the folded card using the same Arch die, overlapping the edge of the left side with the cutting edge of the die so that it does not cut along that side to create an arched card base when die-cut.
Adhere the ink-blended layer with the Lucky Clover ink at the top to the arched card base.
Die-cut the Merry Christmas sentiment out of Chocolate cardstock and adhere to the Card Front.
Trim and adhere the Merry Christmas sentiment to the shaped arch card base.
That pretty Pin Cushion pattern is one that I am going to keep coming back to!
The manger is looking like jewelry on this card in that gold glitter cardstock.
The dark chocolate sentiment stands out against all that color!
This pretty pair should be perfect for a special wish and gift!
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my non-conventional nativity card but hopefully this inspire a little last-minute card-making!
