Peaceful Boughs – Season’s Greetings

And Tuesday has rolled around again!  Just like Sunday is a day with lots of challenge deadlines, Tuesday is a day with lots of Design Team challenges.

So, without further ado, I am working with the Case-ing Tuesday Facebook Challenge (#328).

My choice of materials and tools were influenced by a few other challenges:  Tic Tac Toe (#137) and Paper Players (#565).  Let the fun begin…

Challenge: TTTC137 * Tic – Sparkle (Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels); Tac – Embossing (Wintry 3D Embossing Folder); and Toe – Any Shape Die (Beautiful Boughs Dies)

Challenge: PP565 * Tic – Foil (Gold Foil cardstock); Tac – Embossing (Clear Color Embossing Technique); Toe – Embellishments (Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels)

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Early Espresso cardstock.
  • Background Panel (3¾” x 5⅛”) Gold Foil cardstock die-cut with that sized die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies set and then dry-embossed with the Pine Branch embossing folder from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder set.
  • Sentiment Label Accent Mat: (2⅝” x 1¼”) Soft Suede cardstock die-cut with that sized opening from the Picture This Die.
  • Sentiment Label: (2½” x 1⅛”) Very Vanilla cardstock.  The sentiment, Season’s Greetings, from the retired Peaceful Boughs stamp set was stamped in Versamark ink and then again in Garden Green ink and heat-set with Clear Embossing Powder for a little extra shine.
  • Focal Image Shapes – Pine Cones and Branches: Early Espresso, Soft Suede and Garden Green cardstock scraps were die-cut with the various dies found in the retired coordinating Beautiful Boughs Dies set.

All of the elements were adhered to the card base to match the sketch.  Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for extra holiday sparkle.  If I owned them, I would have used the new Christmas Season and Christmas to Remember Bundles.

Turned out to be a very pretty card.  Never be afraid to mix old and new.  Your stash of treasured stamp sets are fun to pull out and use again and again.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!

  2. The mix of gold elegance and die cut woodsy element is gorgeous Jolanda! Love the embossing for that added something. Thanks so much for joining us at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week!


  3. Great way to play with both of these tic-tac-toe grids, Jolanda! Your embossed foil background is so pretty and it really makes your sentiment and pine cone stand out! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Paper Players and Tic Tac Toe this week!
