Hi everyone! We have a new color challenge this week over at Just Us Girls. Marisa chose the fabulous color palette and it happens to be my favorite!
I have been seeing these angled panels all over blogland, and as a matter of fact, Papertrey Ink has just released a die yesterday to get the perfect angled panel. I cut one myself and just made a template of it so I could use it over and over. Will I buy the PTI one? Probably! I'm a PTI junkie!
Anyway, I digress! On this card, I cut the angled panel out of riding hood red cardstock and paired it with one of my all-time favorite pattern paper from SU which is retired called Christmas Cocoa. The Santa image is from the Tim Holtz Collection and Stampers Anonymous. I've always loved this image, and apparently I love it so much I purchased it twice! Yes I have the cling mount as well as the wood mount versions! That ever happen to you? Be honest now! I stamped the sentiment, from PTI's Instant Photo: Holidays, in Versamark and embossed it in white ep. Ribbon and a snowflake button finish it off.
I actually did this card first, but I wasn't loving the way the twine looked. To "petite". I should have wrapped it around the panel about three times. Hind sight is 20/20! I reversed the colors of the panels, image, and card base from the other one. I like the red image better I think!
