The current challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throw Down is to create a Christmas card using the inlaid dies technique.
this is a great way to have your cards be flat for mailing yet have interest created by use of dies. I kept mine simple. I diecut the piece of white paper using the Spellbinders poinsettia die and the Sizzix swirl die. I then cut those same shapes out of my colored paper. After gluing the color pieces into the negative places in the white paper, I did add some additional poinsettia layers for some dimension. I added pen stitching around the outside of the card. The end result is simple yet pretty.
I hope you join us at 52 CCT.
