Wow ~ it is Sep 1!!! I can’t believe it… where DID the summer go? Are your kids ready for school? And wonder what school is going to look like? Nearly everywhere I go folks are wearing masks again… and I don’t go a lot of places: grocery store, Costco, church, like that. I haven’t been “shopping” in quite a while. And then there’s Ida – a really big hurricane.; and Afghanistan… ugh… my heart does ache for all these people & the situations of the world. Sending up prayers of comfort, peace, resolution, patience ~ you get it. I think most of you are with me on this.

OK ~ today’s card 😜. Let me tell you what I did… I went looking in the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog for a bit of inspiration, and found it! The DSP used here is Peaceful Place SDSP. It is gorgeous! I also used Majestic Mountain Dies and the Christmas To Remember stamp set. That’s why this post is called Mixing & Matching :)

Mixing & Matching.1

Crumb Cake card stock is the card base. I adhered a panel of Peaceful Place DSP to Basic Gray card stock and wrapped it twice around with Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack – basically the Black & White Bakers Twine, and tied a bow. I mounted these two to the card base with dimensionals. I pulled out another panel of the Peaceful Place DSP, die cut two trees using the Majestic Mountain Dies. I backed one of the trees, slightly off-set, with a Basic White panel after die cutting the filigree- type tree from Majestic Mountain Dies. I adhered this die cut DSP to a piece of Granny Apple Green card stock, put dimensionals on the back and centered it over the other panels. I stamped the word ‘merry’ from the Christmas To Remember stamp set with VersaMark ink onto a Basic White scrap. I sprinkled it with silver embossing powder & heat set it. Once it was cool, I die cut with the Messages Die. (This is a big die, but I used only a scrap on which to stamp and die cut just the banner I wanted.) I added the banner to the card front with more dimesnionals. For a final touch I added two Silver Epoxy Essentials to the top of the trees ~ and the card front was done.

Mixing & Matching.2

For the inside, I took the same stamp and stamped with VersaMark ink, the ‘merry christmas’ then sprinkle it with silver embossing powder & heat set it. I had this tree that was removed from the Peaceful Place DSP (yep, from the card front, adhered it to another tree die cut from Basic White and put it on the panel. And one more Silver Epoxy Essentials was added to the top of the tree. I adhered the Basic White panel to Basic Gray card stock then added it to the inside of the card. Voila!

For the envelope, more of the same Peaceful Place DSP was added to the envelope flap & trimmed to fit. For the front, there was this extra tree die cut from the DSP for the card front. I added it to the front of the envelope with liquid glue ~ and it was finis…
