Merry Christmas ~ inked inlay cards ~

Hello everyone! I am sharing the last on my Christmas cards with you. The cards that I have made were designed specifically for mailing. I needed to create cards that were flat and of a standard size...out of my usual design scope as my cards usually measure 6 x 6 inches or 5 x 7 inches in size. I also needed to be able to mass produce cards as well so they needed to have easy details to replicate. I was inspired by Jennifer McGuires inked inlay techique and decided that this would be perfect for my card.

As I haven't created one layered cards for a long time, I added an embossed background and also two die cut borders to add some extra details. Once my first card was created, I die cut all of the required pieces and then the construction was just an assembly line.





Supplies:

Stamp: (freebie with a magazine)

Ink: Distress ink Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch, Zing Metallic Finish Silver Embossing Powder

Paper: American Crafts Glitter paper pad,

Dies: Precious Marike Snowflake Border, Creative Dies Woodland Scene Set, Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Holiday Magic

Other: Ranger - Diamond Stickles, Crea8tive A5 double sided sticky sheets

Thanks so much for stopping by!
