This week's Ways to Use It challenge asks us to use fussy cutting on a card. I fussy cut my trees from patterned paper and then used them to create a card with inlaid embossing for Christmas.
I started by fussy-cutting the trees from some Christmas patterned paper, keeping just a tiny bit of the border around each tree to help it stand out against the background. I adhered the trees to a piece of dark green card stock in slightly uneven rows and then embossed the panel using the Bow Strings embossing folder horizontally. I stamped my sentiment in Pine on a piece of Natural White card stock, then adhered the sentiment to dark green and kraft card stocks.
I pulled a fiber strand from some off-white burlap in my stash and adhered it over my embossed panel. I attached the embossed panel to a card base made from kraft card stock. I added some Glossy Accents to the "joy" sentiment and set it aside to dry. I wanted this card to be understated, but just couldn't resist a tiny bit of shine!
