Deck the Halls for #MCC13
Today I have a holiday card to share with all of you, and of course I followed the idea, if not the true measures, of the Mystery CASE #MCC13 offered this week. I was able to pre-order a few items from the NEW Holiday Catalog collection, and wanted to start crafting with them.
This card features three items in the holiday catalog. Remember these items can be purchased starting Aug 4th. The same day you can start redeeming any $5 coupon codes you earned in July!
So we have had two cards with this Mystery CASE layout already this week. I have a Stampin’ Show & Tell Slideshow for this one for you. Just to take you through my creative process.
Deck the Halls for #MCC13 Tips & Tricks
- So you can see I started with two panels of the Poinsettia Place patterned paper, die cut with the Stitched Rectangular Dies. So the dies determined my measures on the panels and the Old Olive mounting cardstock.
- I used the dies a second time to mimic the stitched edge along the cut edge of the second piece that was segmented. This also created just a slight gap or space, which worked perfect for this layout.
- Since I decided to go with the Soft Suede side of the second patterned paper instead of the creamy poinsettia side, I used Soft Suede as my card base color.
- I embossed both the card base, and the inside panel with the EVERGREEN Embossing Fold, to create texture and detail.
