Time to Celebrate my DH Denny's 74th Birthday :-)
And the Close Up
I then die cut the same tree in an Arches Cold Press 4" x 5 1/4" card front that I had dry embossed with my SU Woodgrain EB folder.
I used another Alcohol ink background that I had used Tim Holtz Pesto, Lettuce and Pinata Gold Mixative AI, which gave a gorgeous gold glimmer.
I placed the 2nd piece behind the die cut card front so it would show thru the die cut card front and give another layer for a tiny bit of framing.
Inlaying the die cut tree really made the tree pop. I love all the different AI colors in the tree.
I added a stamped PB "Heartfelt Thanks" sentiment that I fussy cut and popped up. Also a strip of leftover AI to ground the tree.
Denny's favorite style is CAS and he is intrigued with alcohol ink backgrounds, so I think he will really like his card.
My card is for the CAS Mix UP January Challenge...my choice inlaid Die Cutting and dry EB.
Also for the Splitcoaststamping F4A359 Dye's and SCS CAS210 Show me your new..my new PB sentiment.
And SSS Blog Wednesday Challenge: Something New..My 1st time using the Inlaid Technique with my Woodland Tree Die.
