Hi everyone. November 1st marked the start of Beccy's annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge. Hopefully, this will help me create lots of Christmas cards this month, since I am still way behind on my Christmas card stash. I'm also taking the current Holiday Card Workshop at Online Card Classes, which is also a great incentive to continue creating.
I'm also thankful for all of the challenge blogs out in blog land, because they also offer lots of ideas and inspiration.
Anyway, I created the panel for today's card using the smooshing technique and then decided to add some texture by embossing with the star die you see in the picture. I've had this die for several years now, but had not used it on a card yet, because after die cutting I ended up with all individual stars, which was not what I had expected. I do love how the embossing turned out, though, so I'll probably do this again. I cut my panel using a stitched rectangle die (SSS).
To create my scene, I die cut the sentiment circle (MFT) twice and layered the trees and deer (by Hero Arts, from my UFO box) on top. I added a sprinkle of mixed sequins for some holiday sparkle.
I'm playing at:
