Christmas Elegance

You might recognise the type of background I used for today’s card. It is one of my gel printing clean up sheets. I think this one looks a bit like plaid. I used the Penny Black ‘Christmas elegance’ die to cut the tree from the panel and splattered with gold paint.

I attached the die cut panel to an embossed piece of white cardstock, also plaid. The sentiment is a little tricky to see; I think it might have been better to stamp it in navy ink rather than emboss those tiny words. All in all the card is simple and elegant and I like that combination!

By the way I have updated the classes page with my final in-person class for the year. I wish I could tell you the new online class is also ready! I’m working on it!

    This mop up piece works brilliantly as a background for your pretty white die cut tree Heather and I love the plaid EF you have used on the matted background piece too. x

    Love seeing you use those papers from rolling off the paint from gelli prints. LOVE this idea and even have that die! I agree that your background reminds me of plaid. Thank you for the inspiration.
