Only four more days until the end of the month and the end of the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS IN JULY. Time sure flies when you're having fun, 'eh? Today's card highlights the fabulous Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder and the Wishes & Wonder bundle. (Oh! And a die from a different bundle that will be featured tomorrow, heehee!)
Isn't that die cut elk just gorgeous? Between him and the embossed trees, the card didn't need anything other than a greeting.
Note: When you add ink to an embossed piece, be sure to dab off a lot of the excess ink on scratch paper before very lightly (I can't emphasize that enough) rubbing it on the embossing. On the trees, I started at the tops and lightly "polished" down, so more color would be on the tops. It looks like they are peeking through a low foggy mist, doesn't it? Measurements and instructions are below.
Remember, buy any bundle in August from the upcoming 2020 Aug-Dec Mini Catalog, which starts August 4th, and received a pre-cut, ready to stamp and assemble card kit (4 cards and envelopes) from me! The kit will include any die cuts and embossed pieces, as well as embellishments needed to complete the cards. All you need is stamps, ink, and adhesives.
