Day 10

I love the Christmas Pines Stamp Set & Pretty Pines Framelits AND they are not retiring!!! 

Pretty Pines & Christmas Pines

While creating this card I realized I do not own Basic Gray ink! How is that possible? (Guess what will be going in my Free Shipping order tomorrow)? So I had to improvise when it came to the color of the sentiment. I tried Silver, White and Clear embossing powders. Clear embossing powder over Archival Black Ink was the winner. Silver was too faint against Powder Pink and White wasn’t crisp enough.

I really struggle with tying any kind of ribbon or trim so I decided to make this card easier and use washi tape.

This card was pretty simple to put together after the die-cutting was done. I adhered everything with Fast Fuse except for the leaves on which I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen and the punched sentiment which is popped up on Dimensionals. To adhere the leaves I placed them on the die cut circle and then used the fine tip to place a bit of glue under each of the stems and then pressed the stems down. Had I of wanted to adhere the entire piece of each leaf, I would have reached for the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets-these make adhering delicate die cuts much easier.

Don’t forget about the Year End Sales Event running until January 2nd. You get free shipping on these items too.

I hope you enjoyed Day 10. See you tomorrow
