The days are getting away from me again! How are you? This is ‘take two’ for this card…the first one…well, it got trashed! lol I used a couple more dies and pattern paper and yikes…back to CAS! haha
I love this combo of candle, pine and holly. I die cut it in white…heat embossed the outline with gold embossing powder twice, then colored the pieces with Copic Sketch markers before I inlaid them back in.
To keep the pieces together, I piece them from the wrong side and use 3L thin mounting squares to hold them together. I cut the squares into 3 strips and it really works quite well. You could do this with any foam type mounting adhesive. I’ll have to take a picture of what it looks like next time I do it. Take for example, where the holly is coming off the side of the candle…great place to stick one and it holds the inner leaf to the outline of the candle and to the candle.
The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas Sentiments stamp set HERE. I just started using the Tim Holtz Stamp Press HERE….I like it a lot! The die is called the Candle Centerpiece HERE and the strip of pattern paper is from Pebbles Merry Merry Collection, HERE. (it’s from the strip on the bottom of the paper where one side has the name and the other side is complementary to the pattern, on the Holly Berries sheet)
Linking up to some challenges…
