Tiled Design Christmas Card

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. The stamp I used on this card is the Blank Page Muse Beyond the Border Christmas set. The trees stamp is vertically oriented. To give this stamp a new look, I stamped the trees on different colored cardstocks. I used a slightly darker colored ink for each colored cardstock to make the trees pop-out. To make the trees pop out some more, I embossed the trees with Ranger Holographic embossing powder. I used a Misti Stamping Tool for precise stamping with the dye inks and the sticky ink. 

I trimmed the tree border close to the edge of the image. I trimmed each tree separately to create five trees. All I had to now is to create a background using these cut up trees. 

I adhered the cut up trees to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" typing paper. I die cut this paper into a 4" x 5 1/4" panel. I adhered this to a pink cardstock die cut at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". I used a stitched rectangle die to die cut this pink panel.

For the sentiment, I wanted a small, simple sentiment so that focus will not be taken away from the tiled background. I stamped the sentiment on a pink cardstock, the same cardstock I used for the tree and the matte. I used the same pink dye ink I used for the tree to stamp the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment with sticky ink and poured the same hollographic embossing powder over it, then heat set it. I trimmed this into a sentiment strip. I adhered another sentiment strip to its back for a bit of dimension. 

I hope you like today's card. The holographic powder gives the the tree different kinds of shimmer depending on how the light hits it. Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
