Here’s to another January birthday! My card today uses the Tim Holtz Sizzix Poinsettia Pieces die which was cut twice for the outline and all of those little tiny pieces were captured while still in the die onto a piece of press ‘n seal. The pieces were sponged lightly with some distress inks and then inserted back into the outline which was mounted on cranberry tart cardstock. This card was my second attempt. First after I inserted all of the pieces and found inky finger marks on the white cardstock…drat that slow drying distress ink….I decided to add some of the leaves to cover the smudges….mistake so that ended up in the trash. After clearing snow today, decided to give it another go and it worked better making sure the ink was dry before touching and inserting. The birthday is also a Tim Holtz Sizzix Celebrate die and hugs was stamped using GKD’s Whimsical Spring stamp set.
My card will be entered into the Double D Challenges poinsettia challenge. Pretty mood board for inspiration was included:
Thanks for stopping by and be safe.
