Grab your holiday greenery stamps, stencils, or dies, and join us for this month's Twofer Card Challenge
! This month, since it's Christmas card making crunch time, Twofer is allowing the two cards to be for the SAME occasion! My stamp of choice (actually 2) are from PTI's Spruce and Sprigs. I still decided to use two different occasions, because I use thank you cards at Christmas for people that are so helpful all year long, such as the piano teacher and our hair stylist.
On my Christmas card, I stamped the holly, fussy cut them, and silver heat embossed the edges. The berries were die cut from red cs with a dot of silver embossing. The panel was dry embossed with the addition of a circle diffuser so that I could stamp and heat emboss the sentiment on a flat surface.
On the thank you card, the holly, berries, and sprigs of pine were stamped using the MISTI so they could be re-stamped to shade with darker ink. The card base was flipped so the cluster is the same on the bottom left as it is on the upper right. The panel was ink blended with PTI Ocean Tides and then speckled with the same ink, watered down and flicked on with a stiff paint brush. The panel was then die cut with a stitched rectangle.
I hope you will join us for this festive Twofer this month! Please stop by the Twofer Card Challenge
