The gals over at Sunday Stamps have a delightful inspiration board for you. I loved the earthy tones with red and deep green, and I just happened to have recently made these two cards using those colors. How perfect!!
My mom had these beautiful 8x8 papers of winter scenes painted by the amazing "Painter of Light", Thomas Kinkade. I've sat on this bundle of papers for quite a few years now, wondering if I would ever use them. Well, I'm so glad I did! I cut the front panel of the scenery using Waffle Flowers Postage Stamp die and mounted it to a panel of kraft cardstock. I distressed around all the edges using Walnut Stain DOX ink. I added these enamel stickers that I've had in my stash for ages. Another box checked for using up ancient supplies!
I popped the front panel up using foam tape, to make a slider pocket.
Using the portion of the image that I had cut off for the front of the card, I made a slide out tag, adding some postage art stamps.
I heat embossed the sentiment using chunky gold embossing powder.
I really loved how the postage die cut the panel of printed cardstock. It looks like a page of stamps that I wouldn't dare cut apart!
The second card was much more simple than the first, as it's not a slider at all.
It's just wrapped up in prettiness!
I'll be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
