Neat & Tangled November 2019 Release Day 2 + GIVEAWAY!

Welcome back to Day 2 of Inspiration with the Neat & Tangled November 2019 Release! I have a card to share today that was a labor of love but really fun design.

Don’t forget the new release is available NOW for purchase! You can pick it up HERE (clickable link).


Today’s card involves a lot of heat embossing. I first started out by copic coloring my image from the Classic Christmas stamp set and cutting out with the coordinating die.

Next, I heat embossed the Holiday Wishes background stamp onto Cranberry, Palm and Pitch Black cardstock with white embossing powder.

Using my paper trimmer, I trimmed those background panels into thin strips. I put down dot runner on a piece of white cardstock that I had trimmed down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and started laying down my strips.

I trimmed off any excess and attached my panel to craft foam using Connect glue.

I then added my strip panel to a white card base and attached the floral image to the card front with dot runner.

Also note that I have a ton of strips left from these backgrounds that I cut down so I could make multiple cards from this design! I’m also really loving this color combo for Christmas.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!
