A new Scrapy Land Challenge begins today and the theme for the new challenge is:
Emboss It! (Heat or Dry) Plus use any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.
I have another Christmas card to share with you today. I'm trying to get a little ahead so that I'm not in such a crunch to get all my cards completed in November. (Probably wishful thinking - but every little bit helps :-). ) My card incorporates both heat embossing (the bow and the snow drifts) as well as dry embossing (the window frame).
The dies used to create this card are:
Cheery Lynn Designs: Ornamental Wreath with Bow
Taylored Expressions: Birch Tree Border
Marianne Designs: Window with Snow Drifts (Scrapy Land special promotion)
From time to time, Scrapy Land has special promotions featuring European die companies that aren't readily available to get in the US. I purchased this Marianne Designs die during one of those promotions. (Be sure to sign up for the newsletter so you'll know when these special events happen.)
This card has lots of layers and dimension, and you can see it better from this angle:
Now it's time to assemble the layers. Beginning with the bottom layer, I added my patterned paper to the card base, then the birch trees. Next I adhered the snow drifts to the back of the window panes and added dimensional tape along the back edges of the window. The final step was to adhere the wreath and bow to the front of the window. I also used a small pop dot for the bow.
You have until July 31st to upload your Emboss It! project to the Scrapy Land Challenge. The winner, chosen by the design team, will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land. Be sure to check out what the rest of the talented Designers have created for this challenge. I know you you'll be inspired.
